The elky hoods are the same. The monte won't fit without changing everything from the quarter panels forward. Not sure about the malibu.
The hoods from any fifth generation El Camino will fit. This includes flat and cowl induction styles. I believe you can also use a hood from a Chevrolet Monte Carlo and a hood from an Oldsmobile Cutlass from similar years. There are also many aftermarket styles available that are made specifically for fifth generation El Caminos.
No, 2 differen't body styles.
Cutlass S, yes Cutlass or Cutlass Supreme, no Interwebs search of photos will show the difference- the raised center section. Oh, for details, the 442 will NOT have the "Oldsmobile" script (or holes for it) in the left front corner.
No, they're 2 totally different bodystyles.
the 71 cutlass has no cable pull on latch in the middle of grill or just below frt. bumper
If they are both 4-doors or wagons, yes. If they are both coupes, no
Under the hood, on mine.
Yes but the hood latch has to be relocated.
Any hood from a 1978-83 Chevy Malibu or 1978-87 El Camino or GMC Caballero would work.
This is what I have had to do for my 94 cutlass supreme. Hold the hood release wire lever open from inside the car with a something - a screwdriver or some such thing. Then just pull up on the hood and voila, it releases the latch.
All 1968 Cutlass two doors had Chrome Louvers on the hood. All others did not. The Hurst/Olds had painted louvers. http://www.who-sells-it.com/cy/brothers-automotive-products-4264/oldsmobile-cutlass-442-parts-fall-2009-20699/page-22.html has the part if you need it.
It wouldn't match up in the front due to the 67's wider headlight design
