you guys must be talking about an aftermarket hood. some firebirds had a stock fiberglass hood with twin scoops that is really heavy.

you can call fivestar they know the wt for shipping.

133.00 is cheap, Im hoping you were joking.

Id pay that for a hood, that was gutted, cleaned and ready to paint anytime.
