This is one that I had on my 62.  Just under 84mm, or just over 3.3 inches.

There are 2 types of 3 tab hoods. One is the normal emblem style and the other is a 4 tab style with a 3 tab adapter. The adapter is larger than the normal 3 tab and only fits those specific hoods. They were made from 60 to 63 but weren't always used. Rare to find that hood.
