  1. Default 64 Catalina Hood Hinges - Correct finish

    I just purchased replacement hood hinges for my 64 Catalina Convertible. They came from Ames and are unfinished, but have a coat of protective oil.

    I have seen these painted Black, but also have seen them unfinished, but obviously having some sort of clearcoat applied to prevent rust.

    Can anyone tell me the correct finish as it came from the factory?

    Hi Bob- the correct finish should be unpainted silver and not painted black. A clear coat will prevent rust although they were not clear coated from the factory. good luck.

    Bob, what final assembly plant built your GP?

    (And for that matter, richbee1, what final assembly plant built YOURS?)
    Inventor of the RediRad. (check out www.rediscoveradio.com)

    1962 'Big' Pontiac nut.

    Default 64 hood hinges

    NO BARE HINGES. They were coated with a phosphate coating. the term is parkerizing. The guy that rebuilds them tell us they were bare and you believe him. The hinges would be a rusted mess in a few years without this. Ask Steve Gregori since 1983 1-559-875-0290

    Hi Engine-Ear- I believe the 834P designation on my trim tag means that the assembly plant was Pontiac, Michigan.
