Can't remember if this has been discussed.  Specifically, does anyone know if a '73 Montego hood will fit on a '77-'79 Mercury Cougar?  I know it will fit a '74-'76 Cougar and possibly Elite.  But not sure about the lines of the header panel of the 77-79.  Pretty sure the header panel/hood on the 77-79 T-birds, Rancheros, and LTD IIs are all the same as the 77-79 Cougar, so they should all apply.

Montego hood will fit Thunderbird/Ranchero 77-79. the peak on the center is slightly different (Montego peak runs into the header, thunderbird doesn't have this).
Elite and LTD II share the same hood (visually identical on outside and bolt up the same, same motor manual interchange #, although someone said there are differences in the underhood brace locations).
I would check with Dan the Ranchero Man, as his Monchero has a montego GT on a 77-79 Ranchero, and he is the one who told me about the Montego GT hood fitting in place of the T-bird/Ranchero hood. (Someday I WILL find one!!!) 
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.
