25 Louver V8 Hood

Pictured below are some great pics and details of the rare and elusive 25 louver hood introduced late in 1932 for the V8 engine.

Thanks to "rodster34" (Steve's Auto Restoration) for allowing the use of his pics!

The first and last louvers are dummy louvers for stiffening the panel.
