Here's one on ebay.

You will want the SAE ones of course, 1/2" and 9/16th.

thanks for the name of it. Yeah, I figured a gear ratchet wouldn't be too helpful on a lot of those old hinges. We're getting a lot of these lip stick on a pig cars where we just clean up the finish, line the panels, shoot, and kick it down the road. So we're lining up more doors with fenders on than usual.
I'll keep my eye out for the SAE one, thanks.
