I'm told mid year 68 Ford changed the hood hinges so tryingto determine what would be the correct hood hinge style for a 1st week of May built 68 1/2 CJ mustang. See attached PIC- The earlier version on the right side. See top bar is cut short on the later style.

Anyone know how early prior to build date the hinges should be? 2-3 months ?

Thanks

Original Hood Hinges from 68CJ Build date 4/29/68. The Left hinge does not have any markings, the Right hinge has a date code of 442, (April, 4, 2 Shift) best guess.
