Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
This is for you folks out there who want the correct part number on
your hinge. Good used OEM original hood hinges that are available
individually or as a set. We now offer a PREMIUM quality reproduction that is superior to any other reproduction. We carefully inspect these hinges
before sending them as used hinges are prone to wear in more than one
area. Here is a helpful youtube video that shows you how to adjust your hood. Shipped with the spring.
These will work on all 1967-70 as well. But because the 1970 Cougar has
the grill center attached to the hood, the springs for 70 are heavier
duty to support the extra weight.
Ford master part # C9ZB-16801.
You can find the hood hinge apron nuts here.
Anghel Restorations offers a very detailed breakdown of the differences in the Cougar and Mustang hood hinges.
