  1. The ornamental design for hood for an automobile, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a hood for an automobile according to my novel design, taken from in front of an above the hood;

FIG. 2 is a front view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a rear view thereof;

FIG. 4 is side view thereof, the opposite side view being a mirror image;

FIG. 5 is a top view thereof; and,

FIG. 6 is a front perspective view of the hood according to my novel design attached to an automobile.

The broken line showing of an automobile is for illustrative purposes only and forms no part of the claimed design. Further, the internal surface of the hood includes no ornamentality and forms no part of the claimed design, so a bottom view showing of the internal surface of the hood is not illustrated.

The following details are hereby disclaimed and do not form part of the claimed design: portions of the internal surface of the hood shown in FIGS. 1-4; any color or contrast shown in FIGS. 1-6; any grill structure shown in FIGS. 3, 5 and 6; any internal structures illustrated behind the grill in FIGS. 3 and 6; any mounting structures or openings shown in FIGS. 1-6 for fastening the hood to the automobile; and any automobile structure other than the hood illustrated in FIG. 6.
