Replacing Hood 89 F150

Been shopping for a paintable (very little rust or dents) before I paint the truck this spring. Finding many at 75. to 100, but most have been through a few New England hail storms. Anyone know a reliable source (honesty re: condition) so I don't run myself all over the state for nothing? Believe 1989 will accept up to a 1994, but I could be wrong. Need to buy locally, as I'd rather see it before I buy it. I live near Hartford. Thanks.

Did you try your local junkyards? Last time I was in the one in Danbury I think there was a couple whole trucks sitting around. If you can't find one close to you I can ck. here. I am about an hour ride from you.

I have checked a few. Actually got a call back from a local yard, but can't get there during the week. ( I work out of state) If I can scoot over there Sat. I will check it out. If not in good condition, I will take you up on your offer. I have a somewhat decent hood (too it off a bronco on there now, but since I will be investing $$$ on a superior paint job, I'd like to start with a hood in better condition. I know I can get an aftermarket one for around 235.-250. but hoping to find one in salvage for around 100.

I might have one from an 88. I bought a parts truck and it has a hood, but I would have to double check it's condition. Are you still looking for one?

I am in the Fairfield area.

Hi Jody,
Thanks for your reply. I found one but have not seen it. A local scrapyard specilizing in trucks notified me after I sent them an online message. The trouble is, I cannot get there during the week and they are closed Saturdays. If you are not in a hurry to unload the one you have, I would appreciate the time to scoot over to the scrapyard in a week or so to check its condition. I am painting my truck in the spring and really would like to get one without a lot of rust and dents. Please, if you don't mind, send me an email with the condition of the 88 you have. Send to Frankk54@sbcglobal.net

Interchangable parts???

Here is an interesting thought. Will the 88 hood replace an 89? There was an item in FTE not too long ago describing where this information can be found, (interechanging parts/years) but it escapes me now.

I believe they were the same from 86-91, but I really am not sure. ask on another section of this forum.

87-91 share the same hood.

Did you find a hood yet?

I have a 88 F250 that I am parting out. It has a good hood. No dents, but some rust. I'm in Shelton.

I have had a couple of offers to provide a hood. One from a local junk yard, and another from a member here, also in CT. I have not rushed to replace it only because I am not taking it in to the body shop until the spring. I am considering every offer but am trying not to put a hood on the truck that will creat more work for the body shop. As it is, they are charging a lot to repair the dents, and surface rust I have now. Does your hood have surface rust or will it be a major repair? The one I have on there now is off a Bronco that must have been caught in a hailstorm. Too many dents to even consider repairing. Also, have you decided on a price yet? Thanks for the reply by the way. This FTE is a great site.

Overall it's good, but has a small amount of rust on the front lip. I can E-mail you a picture if you want. This is on a truck I'm parting out. Let me know if you need anything else off of it.
