Default Hood Help

I own a 1971 coupe. It has been fitted with a 1976 style full length (no wiper door) high-rise type hood. Iím looking for a full length hood like this that will look like/mimic a base 1971 hood (pointed front) but Iím having no luck finding one either premade or custom. Any help appreciated..

What's wrong with the standard '71 hood with the wiper door?

I think starting in '73 the hoods have the bulge not as high as an L88 style, to provide and accommodate a little extra height for the air cleaner/manifold combo.

Guess someone could splice the extra length on a 71/72 base motor hood, with some talent.
