Default rusty hinges 1980 Fleetwood

I need to replace my door hingeson least one door on my 1980 Fleetwood brougham. Does anyone offer any replacements that are good quality or should I hit the parts yard? Are there any other Cadillac models ( or other GMs) that will interchange?

Hinges are available at www.usapartssupply.com and they are a little pricey but if you need them and want new it will save you a lot of time.

This is a "B" body GM car I believe. So a full size Olds 98, 88 or a large Buick or Pontiac uses the same hinge.

That makes sense. It was too obvious for me to think of. Thanks. To Cadillac heads are better than one, right?

These cars also can provide door switch panels, mirrors, radios, and stiffer suspension parts, windshields, door glass and different wheels.

Stiffer better handling suspension? Which models? Buick possibly the La Sasbre? Thanks for the input.

Yes the le Sabre. They made a turbo V/6 version that I used for the rear sway bar to upgrade my Olds 98 years ago. Turbo bubble hood might fit?

Turbo bubble hood? It might look good and would be different. It could possibly clear an aftermarket fuel injection system for the 500bb I have and am dying to build.I like where this is going. Thanks.
