Does the hood from a 97 park avenue fit a 97 lesabre?

No, The body style changed for both the lesabre and the park ave both years but while the Park Avenue's design was more bulky, the LeSabre was almost the same as before.. up until 2000 then the Lesabre's styling caught up with the Park Avenue. The Park Avenue and Lesabre were discontinued in 2005 The LaCrosse and Lucerne took their place pretty much.. My opinion is the 91-96 Park Ave/92-96 LeSabre looked the best ...and the front ends were interchangeable.
