    a lot of guys used to use hinges from 80s buicks. the hood would raise straight up and then swing forward.

    I have the tilt hood kit on 56 Chevy truck from No Limit and I'm very happy with it.

    I am also using a no limit kit on my 55 f100. It works well. (although I don't like the look of the billet roller mount pieces, will come up with different solution soon)

    The No Limit kit is well thought out and proven.

    Those 80 something Buick hinges can be made to work if you are able to think way outside of the box and have some creative talent. They aren't close to a bolt on and go deal.
