Hornet/ Concord/ Eagle liftgate hinges
« on: February 18, 2024, 01:04:42 PM »
Just picked up a 1975 Hornet Sportabout wagon and yesterday and unfortunately ended up with a broken driver's side hinge on the liftgate.
1. looking for replacement hinges, understand they a hard to come by
2. while searching I ran across am post of someone making replacements from a model, however I didn't see a final post how that worked out -anyone Know if that thread finished.

Thanks

I thought I had one but when I found it, it's for the right side. Must be someone here who has one for sale.

Actually when the drivers side broke it tweaked the right side, hope to get them off tomorrow and check out the right side, depending on what I find I may need the right side.
I'll let you know . OKay?

Still waiting till find a drivers side, however just lining up the broken side it seems that the right side is pulling the gap closed along the body line of the hatch. What would you want for the right side hinge you have.

Just the shipping charges. Send me your zip code and I'll bundle it up and see what it costs.
