I have a 1988 Volvo 240 DL, I was curious to know if a flat hood would work on my 240. I know the cow of my hood has a rise lining up to the body behind the hood, so I know there will be a gap there but would a flat hood still work? If so anyone have any flat hoods for sale? :)

This is the question that has new thread posted at least once a month.......yes and yes! Our search engine sucks on this site but the answer is definitely out there!! the cowl doesn't line up correctly and will look funny, but it works!

Fun facts about the cowl, when they made the new front end for the 86, the designer that draw the new front end never thought his idea about the new cowl would be reality.

Yes, I've met the guy, he and his twin started to work at Volvo's design department back in 1970. I've heard lot's of fun facts from them
