    Probably at least Firebirds for sure. There used to be a book the name escapes me that had part number cross references. Rebuilding is easy as long as the bushings didn't wear to the point where the metal bracket hole starts to oblong. Then you have to weld the hole up or go to oversize bushings etc.

    Like Dave said, easy to rebuild. Just a matter of putting in new bushings. The main thing is to make sure they are not worn to far where the pin wore through the bushing and into the steel.

    Those are NOT NOS. Nos would all be the same color and not corroded. The hinges for our cars were universal on alot of cars. Especially Caddys, Bonnys, 225"s and Impalas. I bought 3 sets of used off ebay years ago, but identical to my factory originals. For new hinges, the closest repops are from Dynacorn,
    which I highly recommend.
