you will probably need to get yourself a flat hood and then buy the scoop that best suits your likeing, and have it installed. I dont know of anyone that sells one complete.

Default Firebird Hood

If I'm not mistaken, 76 and below hoods don't line up the same with the nose as 77-81. Are you thinking to put the 70-76 hood on a 77 or newer car?

If memory serves me correctly, that won't work. 77-81 is slightly different body line along the front clip.

Your glass tek hood is a good hood. I have used glas tek in the past. I would call them and see what they can doo to help you, but superstreeter might be right, you may want to get a flat hood and them install the scoop for a better look.....
