Joe, if you are offered a reproduction be very careful. The only ones I know of were discontinued a while back. There may well be some still out there because they did not ever fit well. The neck hole was poorly formed, the Ford script was pressed way too deep but the biggest problem was the sides. Instead of flaring our wider to follow the line of the hood, they were square to the front like the low radiator shells. This means the hood could never fit correctly.
Hope this helps.
