Buick golf door hinge parts WTB

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm looking for a set of hinge pivot pin brackets that the door hinge pivots from for my 1931 Buick model 8-66S special coupe.  These parts are actually staked to the pivot pin so that the door half of the hinge, hinge pin and these brackets were permanently assembled, then loaded into  and screwed to the housing that attaches to the door post in the car.  I'm including pictures of a complete hinge (picture 1) a housing with the pivots attached without the door part of the hinge because the hinge pin was broken off at the staking point (picture 2) and just the pivot brackets (picture 3)  a 4th possibility (not pictured) would be the door portion of the hinge and the pivot brackets staked together without the housing.  I will take any of the possible combinations as long as I get the 2 pivot pin brackets shown in picture 3.  I have one complete functional hinge and all the parts to make the other except the hinge pivot pin brackets in picture 3.

 

Thanks!

Hi and thanks for your response.  I don't believe the hinge you have is the same and more importantly I don't think it has the 2 piece pivot pin bracket shown in picture 3 of my post, it looks like the pivot pin bracket on your hinge is made in one piece.  The part of your hinge that mounts on the door post is 2-1/2" where mine is 3-1/2".  I should probably mark up a picture with some dimensions on it to clarify. 

 

Again- thanks for your response.

Here are some additional pictures and part dimensions for the hinge and pivot pin brackets.  To reiterate, the parts I need are the 2 pivot pin brackets shown in picture 1 of this post and picture 3 of the original post but if you have a complete hinge, just the housing with the pivot brackets still screwed in place or the door half of the hinge with pivot brackets staked on I will take any of those combinations or just the pivot pin brackets.

 

Picture 1:   Pivot pin offset from top surface of bracket to pin center = 1-1/16"

Picture 2:  Hinge housing height = 1-3/8"

Picture 3:  Hinge housing long side = 3-1/2"

Picture 4:  Hinge housing narrow side = 1-1/2"

Picture 5:  Hinge door bracket long side = 2-5/8"

Picture 6:  Hinge door bracket narrow side = 1-5/16"

Yes, I see the differences.  My Soss hinges are for a Auburn speedster golf bag door. I have found that, that style hinge is used on actual doors of many teen and 20's cars. A way to broaden your search.

I have seen them on this site when people are trying to ID doors in the 'What Is It" sub forum.
