65-67 GTO Hood

I have a base model GTO hood, which I thought was interchangeable for GTO's years 65-67. Some GTO owners at a recent car show told me that there is a difference in the width of the hoods for years 65-67 even though they appear the same. Can some of you GTO experts please clarify for me if they are in fact the same or slightly different. Thank you.

I believe they are the same, I can take measurements of my 66 and 67 and post the results if you want.

My back edge width is the same as Rukee's on both the 66 and 67,

The front is 54 3/8" on both cars.
