Sorry, just reread your post. You’re only looking for one bolt. Can you remove one of the other ones and take to an auto parts store?

It is unusual with with that big 1.25” diameter washer. 3/8-16 thread. Looks like mine scraped a speed bump or two.

Thanks for the info. Also the kits don't seem to include the washer. :-(

Not only that, but I noticed that the Repro Bolts don't include the correct Huge large washers....

:eek:)

"I believe the bolts used to mount the door hinges to the body
are the same. "


I don't believe they are......and '65 and '66 also used different size Door hinge Bolts between the two years. '66's actually used smaller diameter bolts than '65's did. A fact that most don't know.

:eek:)

I agree with Woodchuck. I had to replace one of mine. Got a grade 8, 3/16 bolt, washer and lock washer at the hardware store. Way I figured it, if 3 of the 4 are OK and holding the plate where it belongs, the 4th, as long as it's strong and tight enough, should hold things together. Mine has been installed this way since 2016. No issues.
