As far as the hood, I could call the previous owner! If I remember correctly it was a minor fender/bender... I bought this cruiser to build it and use it. That said, I will look for the vin tags on the hood for clarification. But I can assure you that the frame has not been touched/ damaged... This rig is probably the cleanest, straight, 97 "wheeled" 80 out there! Thank you for your input!
