Default 67-69 Camaro SS hood differences

Are there noticeable structural differences on the 3 yrs of hoods besides the fact that
the 67 did not have the 2 hood louver drain holes in the structure and the 68 and 69 does.

Looking to understand the differences please.

69s have a small tab on each side of the rear ribs plus an additional hole at the hinge mounting points. At some point [April 69?] they added reinforcing 'pyramids' along the front horizontal brace.

I think there are a few others but '69 have the most. All covered by the hood pad.

I'm sure someone has pics.

OK thanks - i was more focused on the diff between a 68 and a 67.

I have a 68 hood and a friend was asking if it would be similar to a 67 and what might be the differences as he needs a 67 hood for a car he is doing. If we knew the differences it may be possible to tweak the 68 hood.

So - looking for the differences by yr to understand
