Does anyone know if a 2012 GT500 hood will fit a 2011 GT? I may have a chance at getting one for cheap.

You would need the entire gt500 front end for it too fit. The bumper etc. The GT500 front end is more like the 13-14 stangs and nothing like the 11-12.

I wish they worked perfectly, but our hoods have some overlap on the grill whereas the GT500 butts into the grill on the backside. Some HAVE installed them without doing the swap, but it does leave a slight gap open on top of the grill approximately the width between the foglights...I'll see if I can find the photo to show what I'm talking about.

That would be great. Thanks

It would look HORRIBLE. the gt500 hood buts up against the upper part of the bumper. I had my gt500 hood on for a few days with the stock gt bumper while I was in process of doing the swap and I could never imagine driving around like that.
