Need to find a source in Missouri to purchase a steel cowl hood for a 69. I have found several in catalog's but, quality is unknown and shipping is very high. I would like to find a place to actually look at and possibly purchase one. Any suggestion ?

Here in California we have the "Good Guys" car shows, there are usually two vendors with hoods at the swap meet that they hold in conjunction with the show.
Maybe there is something like that where you live.

Just a note on the quality of the steel cowl hood. I had aftermarket one on my '67 when I bought it. You had to be very careful to close the hood on the center seam or it would dent the surface. The material is too thin and not flat enough on the edges in my opinion. I bought a used original flat hood for a fraction of the cost and difference in material and quality is dramatic. If you want an original cowl hood, they cost a bundle but are worth it like any other panel.

I believe they are still available at your local Chevrolet dealership. Brand spankin' new GM sheet metal! But, be ready to fork over a $500 bill.

do you need a steel hood or would you consider a fiberglass cowl hood ?
if you go with a fiberglass one, i recommend either harwood or unlimited products. they both sell hoods that use the stock hood latches, if that's what your looking for.
vfn is also another good name.
later,
bruce
