Hi. Just like to know would a Ford EL XR6 or 8 bonnet bolt straight onto a EL Futura model ?
They look the same obviously not the scoops but shape wise.
I have a EL Futura and want to fit a EL XR bonnet.

If memory serves, should fit no problem.

Definitely won't fit unless you change the headlights and front bar. EL has a totally different front end to EF models.

It's the same as the EF Futura, without the bonnet vents.
