Our best-selling hinge ever, the H-1309 hinge was designed to fit the 1967-1969 Chevrolet Camaro. Due to Chevy’s various interchange options, our H-1309s also fit several other makes/models including 1965–1967 Chevelles, Monte Carlos, El Caminos, Impalas, 1966-1967 Novas* and even early model Holdens. Originally designed in 2007 and then improved in 2008 with 9 more inches of hood opening, our H-1309 hinge is our most versitally reliable hood hinge. As with all our products, the H-1309 were designed in our Scottsdale facility and then manufactured using only the best grades of aluminum, bearings and hardware. Each set is hand assembled in house after rigorous quality control checks.
Pride and quality are important to Fesler and as a result we use 6061 aerospace grade billet aluminum for phenomenal strength and durability. Weather tight, dust resistant bearings and stainless steel button head hardware are used to guarantee accurate functionality in any climate. We also include proprietary reinforcement and safety elements to insure lifetime strength and durability
The H-1309 hinge offers an affordable functioning option for the nation’s most popular muscle car. Until now, the only option for “custom” hood hinges was chromed versions of the factory original, that, while offering glitter and shine, compromised strength my actually weakening the spring. Our hinges offer more stability and support and are incredibly stronger than stock and/or chromed stock hinges.
44-year old, rusty steel hinge frames can now be replaced with distinctive aluminum assemblies and bulky outdated springs can be replaced with mechanically advanced gas charged carbon steel lift supports. The high grade gas lift supports provide maximum lift assist as well as corrosion resistance and are covered by a 2 year marine environment warranty. Each pair of lift supports are engineered to last up to 50,000 cycles. Each pair of hinges come standard with our black carbon lift supports but, polished stainless steel lift supports can be added for only $95.00 more.
Please be aware that heavier (those with skinned hood, extra weight from body work, additional metal work like added hood scoops) may require a heavier lift support option to keep the hood from sagging during display. Be sure to choose your correct hood weight when ordering. Please understand that some hoods could be too heavy for our strongest lift support. Because we have researched and engineered our lift supports to contain the maximum amount of gas to operate at a safe level, we are unwilling to risk vehicle damage and/or human injury by simply making our struts stronger. Fesler takes safety very seriously and would never put your project or well-being in jeopardy just to sell you a product. While we are the only hood hinge manufacturer that offers 8 separate lift support pressures, it is entirely possible that we may not have a pressure that will SAFELY hold up your hood.
The stylish H-1309 hinges are available in a few different finishes including natural, polished, brushed and black anodized. We also now offer two separate designs when ordering our hinges. Choose from our traditional classic style or from our new geometric design. Both styles offer distinctive options for exactly the same price.
The H-1309 will also fit 1967-1969 Firebird and TransAm Pontiac models. For 1970-1981 Chevy and Pontiac models, see part number H-407.
* 1966-1967 Chevrolet Novas will require minor inner fender modification to allow for hinge arm to lower properly. This usually consists of cutting a small oval shape out of the inner fender. Those vehicles with no inner fenders will not have any problems.
** Those vehicles with aftermarket front clips may require slight modifications in order for the hinges to mount properly. TCI, Heidts and Chassisworks chassis have been known to require minor modifications in order for the hinge to fit properly.
** Please be sure to read our Hinge Installation article for a better idea of how to properly align your hood hinges. Fesler hinges were made to fit EXACTLY like OE and do not require any modifications to install. If you feel your mounting locations are not tall enough or that new mounting holes are necessary there is most likely a problem with your aligning method. Please use our article as a troubleshooting guide before modifying the hinges.

The quality of the Hood Hinges I purchased for my 68 Camaro were beyond any expectations.

I purchased the set for my 1969 Camaro in the geometric design with the clear anodized finish. The detail and finish of these hinges is impeccable. These are absolutely great pieces as always with Fesler.

I own a number of pro touring cars, Camero and 1956-57 Chevrolet's. I have purchased, installed and used a large number of Fesler Billet products and I can state infadicaly they are the best in all areas quality and fit.

My name is Kirby H. I have purchased many parts but the one I was most impressed with were the hood hinges. The hinges were amazing! This was the first product I have purchased that was packed and delivered with a white set of gloves to ensure that the chrome was not tarnished during the install. Fesler parts are always the best quality and best engineered. They always have the proper fit. I am extremely satisfied with all Fesler parts I have purchased. Thank you as always, for your quality and customer service. Kirby H

The quality and fit/function of these hinges is simply great. The hood aligned easier than the stock hinges and they gas struts operate so much better than the factory springs.
