A seller on ebaymotors has one for sale. $2699. Shipping is free, though. Do a quick search and you may find others. I used Porsche 356 hood and came up with this result.
You’ll also want to ask around the Porsche forums, they’re experts at keeping them on the road, regardless of age. You might also check out Hemmings.
An EXPERT bodyman, a metalsmith, can repair YOUR hood for less than $2700…
But here it is…
Some other possibilities could be:
Oklahomaforeign.com They’re a foreign car salvage in the OK City area, are reputable, been around forever, and specialize in Porsches of all generations.
Another less likely as compared to the above might be Off Campus Motors in Norman, OK. The guy there has a back alley operation but is an old Porsche freak to the nth degree and has been for decades. I seem to remember him even owning a couple of 356s but I haven’t been there in many years.
