what are the differences in the shrouds? I've had bugs with hoses going from the shroud thru the rear tin to heater boxes and the one I have now doesn't. 71 Super, SP, probably 1600 as it has a tag riveted where the block number usually is.
thanks!

Does the one without hoses look like this?

Does it have a "dog house" on the back, facing the firewall?

IF it's missing the fresh air outlets [size=24]AND it has a dog house, it's a 73 Type 181 (Thing) shroud and it's very desirable.[/size]


If it's not a dog house then it's a 40hp Stale Air shroud and not valuable.

Or it's an aftermarket 36 horse style shroud with no heat.

I'll have to look more closely at the back when I get home.
Thanks for the info all!
