Car manufacturers learned early on that the hood was more than a lid for the engine compartment; it soon became a canvas for car stylists to express themselves, and some of their finest work appeared on the classic and muscle cars of the 50s, 60s and 70s. But by now the hood on your classic has endured decades of exposure and is probably rusted, dinged and dented. Since the hood has an immense impact on the outward look of your prized possession, you should maintain your hood components in proper condition and replace them when the time comes.
The hinge pins and bushings in a hood hinge can become worn, which can affect the hood's position when closed and interfere with hood raising and lowering. Hood hinges can also suffer damage from minor impacts, in which case it would no longer be able to properly function or locate the hood between the fenders.

Goodmark® was founded in 1991 by car enthusiasts, restorers and collectors just like you. They recognized that there was a need for quality restoration parts, especially sheet metal parts, if the restoration of their beloved American classics was to continue. Since that time, Goodmark has created a complete line of sheet metal, trim parts, and accessories for popular cars like the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, and for previously difficult to restore cars like the Dodge Challenger and Plymouth Barracuda. Goodmark uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing) software and modern tooling and manufacturing techniques to create parts that are identical to factory original for perfect fit and finish. Quality parts tooled and manufactured by Goodmark are enabling many more American classic and muscle cars to return to the road, looking just as fine as the day they rolled off the assembly line.
