    The hood hinges on these cars suck. Does anybody have an alternative hood hinge design? Or possibly used hinges from another car on these?

    Also, if someone has a spare set available, please PM me. I need to replace mine. I have already posted in "Wanted".

    Thanks for the help

    I have a used hinge from a 52 Ford (I think 52-54 are the same) I was going to use it on my 53, but sold it. I want $25.00 for it + postage. It is in good shape. Give me a call John 612-751-8582 . I'm kind of new to Hamb and not sure how to respond to threads.

    '52-'54 Ford and Mercury use the same hood hinges. As you have found, these are prone to failure once corrosion enters the pivot points.

  5. I use a 2x4 when I want the hood to go all the way up. Can't tell you how many times I have banged the back of my head on the hood.

    Thank you HRP.

    All I need now is a driver side hood hinge. Anybody have one laying around?
