1936 Dodge Business Coupe Hood fasteners

Recommended Posts

My wife and I recently purchased a 1936 Dodge Business Coupe that was frame off restored 7 years ago. The restorer used plastic hood fasteners on the hood small chrome moldings. They break at the slightest pressure. Can anyone provide info on locating the proper fasteners for the small hood moldings? They don't have to be made in 1936 but would be nice if they are period correct.   I have an original 1936 Dodge Brothers parts book that list the clip numbers but doesn't help me when inputting them on the Internet to locate. Help! Lol......Larry

Check with Restoration Specialties in PA 814-467-9842 9-5 EST. They have reproduced them. I don't know of any other fastener that works well in the thin mouldings.

I used   Restoration Specialties in PA 814-467-9842 9-5 EST.  they were great , The right clips are not cheep but if you do the math their wort every penny . The time you save trying to make any thing else work is well worth the cost.
