I have a set of hood hinges laying around that I do not know what year they came off of. I know they are 68-70. I can not find any markings or date codes on them. Is there a difference in the three years? Thanks

The earlier hinges had rivets with an "X" stamped into one side. The later hinges had a dimple stamped into the head instead.

IIRC they changed over some time in 1969. I do know that every NOS set I have seen had the dimples instead of the Xs.

Except for the markings on the rivets used, 67-70 used the same hood hinges.
