Hood spring missing

Post by Rob330 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 11:28 pm

Hello all , I noticed that the metal tab spring that is mounted to the inside rear corners of my
hood on my 1964 330gt is missing on both my cars .

I have searched for a good picture of one on the net but that corner is always cut off in any pictures
of these cars . I think they can be replicated if I have a few pictures or if anybody knows if they are
available to purchase .

Thanks , Rob .

Hi Rob -- if you are talking about the spring-loaded bumper springs, here is a picture of mine disassembled (mine is and S2, I can't remember if the S1 has the same bumpers).

Series one is different , there was only one series one car at Cavallino this year and he could not open his hood
so for me to see it .

I believe it is flat bar spring stock looking .

I appreciate it Kerry.

I found the missing springs in a small bag
And reproduced them by using metal banding
Straps cut to the lengths I needed .
Worked perfect.
