Q: Door Hinge Interchangeability
Just looking for some information on door hinges. I have a 1969 coupe which has hinges that are in pretty bad shape on the drivers door. Such as not giving the door enough support to open or close properly. I have heard of some hinges being rebuilt some way or another. Also curious about interchangeable hinges such as from a camaro. Any information would be appreciated.
A: All hinges from 1967, 1968, and 1969 are NOT interchangeable. The only hinges that will work are 1969 Camaro and Firebird. National Parts Depot has rebuild kits for upper and lower hinges and a replacement detent roller. Their number is 1-800-874-7595.
Before purchasing, be aware that if the hinges are worn to the point where you’ve “oval-ed” the holes, it’s best to buy new or original used.
