    Looking for a set of Bonnet (hood) hinges for a 1967 Hillman (Sunbeam) Super Minx. The set I have are worn.

    They look like the hinges on the Humber. I might have a pair that I took off the parts car.
    Send me the measurements and I'll see if they'll work.
    Cheers!

    7 1/4” long on the hood with 5 1/4” for the hood bolts on center.
    I was also told that a 69 Alpine GT may have the same hinge.

    Hi Al,

    Sorry it's taken this long, finally found the Humber hinges. They are different but you might be
    able to adapt these or at least use some parts. They seem to have the same measurements for the
    hood, but are shorter on the sides ( same measurement as the hood side.)
    I'll take some shots later today.

    Cheers!
    Steve

    Hi Al,

    Here's what the Humber hinge looks like. Not sure if these will work, but maybe there are
    parts that will?

    Here's a pic.
    Cheers!
