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.
1967 Cougars used this cast iron hinge that weighs a pound or more over the 1968 stamped steel version. You may want to opt for a 1968 hinge if your goal is to lighten your car. You will shed about six pounds if you replace all four with a set of 1968 stamped steel Mercury Cougar door hinges. These used hinges usually need new pins and bushings, for the small cost of the new parts we suggest you purchase the Complete Hinge Rebuild Kit
