will a 25 hood fit to a 26 radiator shell?

Yes, the radiator shrouds were basically the same in shape 1924-27.

The front of a 26/27 hood is 1+1/8 inch larger than the front of a 23-27 hood... And I've seen quite a few fairly sloppy fits where a early shroud was used on a 26-27 or vice-versa... I have always thought that there was about a half inch length difference in the radius when comparing proper 23-27 and 26-27 shrouds that accounted for this?

My 24 fit my later nickel shell just fine.

Adam, I have seen this sloopy also. Does not look pretty. Is Exactly why I asked my question. Thanks all. This is for a speedster.

I looked in my 1926 Ford parts book. It lists the same part # for the steel radiator shroud 1923-26. The low style shroud is listed 1917-23, guess that's the origin of the early / late 1923 talk. The nickeled shroud is listed for 1925/26.
