41 Willys door hinge

I need a pair of door hinges for a fiberglas 41 Willys coupe. I have checked around and no way will I pay $400 for a pair.

I have tried to make a pair but so far no luck. Does anyone have any idea where I can get a pair realitivily cheap. Or better yet does anyone have the dimensions and diagrams so I can make a pair.

Thanks - Jerry

High bucks.

My 32 glass roadster is still up in the rafters, I need 1 door hinge and the windshield I will stretch the social security on lower priced builds first.

Try searching Speedway Motors - Street Rod Parts, Race Parts, Ford Flathead Parts, Sprint and Midget Racing Parts, Pedal Car Parts for "budget hinges" and see if those will work for you.

I used them on my V8 Convertible VW Beetle Project, I was also looking into jeep hinges, but these were cheaper and seemed like they would work better.

You can see some pictures of me installing them at: 1969 Convertible Hot Rod V8 VW Beetle Door Repair! and below is a picture of them installed on the drivers side door.

Hinges

Thanks for all the help. I found a set of plans on EBay that will do the job for me.

Thanks again - Jerry
