    You may need to fabricate! You know, bend metal over a tree stump!

    Have you talked to FoH. They own one and could do a detailed measurement.

    Allagretti in Modena can build one for you that will be spot on. They probably have a pattern.

    Allegretti made replicas of the original 250 GTO, including 1:2 models. Off course they also make the P4. I don't think they do/did anything for the 288.
    The front hood from the 288GTO is made from some exotic mix of materials, kevlar or nomex or something, never understood that as the fenders are plain polyester. Shouldn't be to difficult to build a hood in polyester using a 308/328 hood as a mold and fitting vents (the vents are not the same as 328 has). But then, if you own a real GTO you probably want to keep it original and you probably have no problem paying the money required for a real hood.

    I didn't realize it wasn't pure alum. I bet there's someone in Modena who could make one but I take your point on originality.
