Is there a difference between the hood twist locks on 1970 Mach 1 compared to the 71-73 versions? I think the part #s may be diferent but they look the same in pics. Thanks

As one who has installed the 70 twist locks, I believe the 70 twist locks are a larger diameter than the later years. If you are interested, send me a private message and I will measure the 70 diameter and send it to you.

You might get a measurement, my understanding is they are the same except the latch mechanism at the core support...

The 70 hood twist locks are much larger than the shelby or 71-73 hood locks. The 70 locks are aprox 3 inches in diameter. Tom
