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 without the spring. These will also work on 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. This version with the rounded over rivets showed up late in the 1970 model year, limited supply WITHOUT SPRING.
Ford part # D0ZB-16800.
Anghel Restorations offers a very detailed breakdown of the differences in the Cougar and Mustang hood hinges.
