Reproduction hood hinge spring for all 1967-69 Mercury Cougars and 1964-70 Ford Mustangs. Common on many Ford and Mercury cars, this spring has 14 coils like the originals. We've found these springs to be of lesser quality than the originals, and they will stretch over time and not hold the hood up very well. We highly recommend you stick with original OEM springs. No returns on these springs.

Replaces Ford part # C3OZ-16789-A.
You can find the hood hinge apron nuts here.
*NOTE* Not for use on 1970 Mercury Cougars, those had heavier hoods and use a specific spring.
