Default 1925 alignment issues

A friend of mine has this 1925 Ford Model T truck. He lives a couple of hours from me and while visiting yesterday I noticed his hood was not lining up very well. He said he bought the hood and grill shell from Snyder's many years ago. Now I would just chalk it to poor manufacturing but was curious if you all saw any obvious issues.

Either the radiator is sitting a touch higher than normal or the body mounts at the front are slightly saggy.
I put a couple of fender washers between my body mounts to correct a similar fit problem.
