    I once had a 68 Riviera with 2 different hood hinges. Never could find a match for either of ‘em. I was told that those hinges are a one year only part, but bigger brains than mine may weigh in with more information.

    I recently parted out a 68 Riv and should have saved the hinges---will check.

    Dont have any spares. I know where there are some but the guy wont get off any of his stuff. FWIW I believe 69 will work also

    1387100 RH = 68 Riviera only

    1387101 LH = 68 Riviera only

    69 Riv hood hinges carry different part numbers.

    You can use 69 Riviera hinges but you have to replace them in pairs. You cant mix and match, The issue is that the 69 hinges open the hood higher than the 68 hinges. So they're different

    I ended up finding driver side from a 68 rivi up there and its fits my car perfect ...I checked all the toronados and Cutlass's and Skylark and lesabres from 66-70 and none even have the right bolts holes for the brackets in case anybody ever needed to know ..

    FYI, 68 LeSabre, Wildcat, Electra and Riviera all use the same hood hinges.
