1953 Pontiac Tech Advisor Charles Coker is correct.

 

I have a recent copy of the California Pontiac Restoration catalog and 1949-1954 hood springs are part number C512700RS with a price of $40 per pair.  Their phone number is 877-504-8124.

 

Good luck,

 

John

Ironically I'm just in the process of installing springs for my '54 Starchief I got from CPR. Used the flat washer method I found on YouTube. Can't quite get all of the washers in the old spring so I had to coax it off with a crowbar. The new spring will stretch long enough to install if you place a washer in between each coil. Wouldn't believe it if I didn't try it myself!
