Downs body door hinges ?

My buddy has an older Downs bodied 32 Ford Sedan with broken door hinges. He called them about replacements but no answer yet.

He says they are aluminum. Thats a first for me.

Would anyone happen to know who built the hinges and where he might get a set ?

Of course he would like a set of originals if he can find them.

Thanks a lot guys for any help you could give.

I had (thank the Lord) a Downs '32 Victoria body....the outside skin wasn't too bad but the inside wood and workmanship (???) was terrible. Probably why they are out of business...AGAIN. It had steel hidden door hinges that were 1/4" thick, don't know how you could break them. I do have a set of new age Motorsports hinges, I'll send you a pm.........Dave
