1952 Chevy Hood Hinge Bolts

I'm working on a 1952 Chevrolet Belair and have hit a spot where I'm lost. We are having to repair a lot of the work that was done previously to the car from reinstalling the rear end to replacing the engine and rewiring everything, but here's my question. When the hood was last put back on they used regular bolts in the hinge parts that bolt to the hood. I know they should be shoulder bolts. Car is locked up and I can't take any measurements until after the weekend but, when I search I only see hood hinge bolts for Chevy trucks. Now, the question, did they use the same hood hing bolts on the trucks that they used on the cars? It would seem to be logical that they would but, logic isn't something I'm seeing much of in this car.
Anyone have ideas or experience with this usually simple thing?
Thanks,
Cliff

Place the order

Thanks very much for the link for Chevys of the 40s. I was all over their site last night but never did come up with what I was looking for.

I'll check the other site too. The power brakes are in, the power steering is in. I have to redo some of the linkage on the steering since the shaft was too long and the PO cut a section out and then welded the pieces back together. Doesn't give me any warm and fuzzy feelings though so that has to be gone over pretty closely.

The crate 350 is in along with the transmission and rear end. The front clip is from a Nova and it is off by about 1/2 inch side to side but I think that is going to work OK.

Will post some pics when I take it out for the first roll down the street.

Thanks again for the help.
Cliff
