Need Part - Bolts

Need a couple of the longer bolts that secure the door hinges 65-66. I have plenty of the shorter ones.

Won't be a big sale for you, but will really help my restoration! smileys with beer

HMMMM, Do you have an assembly guide? That will have the length in it. I may have some originals.

I have what I believe to be 3 different lengths. Which do you need? FWI DO NOT put the longest ones in the bottom lower door hinge position.

Three lengths? I only have two on my doors, but who knows if a PO fiddled with them.

The bolts that I need appear to be approximately 1 3/4" long. I assume that they go through the thicker parts of the hinge.

I recall on the 65 and 66 models there were only two different front door hinge bolt lengths. I needed a couple longer hinge bolts and got them from Jeff at Calif. Corvair.

Not sure about 67-69 as they are different.
