the 64.5 hood has about 1/4 inch extensions on the curved part of hood at the front where it goes over the headlight bucket. Hope I explained it right.

The very first Mustang hoods in '64 did not have an 1/4" lip extension on the angled section over the headlight bucket. They were like the regular '65 hood, but there were no dimples stamped in the leading section of the hood about 3" back from the edge.

Then somebody must have noticed the gap between the bucket and the hood, because sometime in April or May, the popular '64 hood came into production with the 1/4" lip extension to meet the bucket.
