I was cleaning up the hinges for my coupe and noticed on the back of them in about a 3/8 in. square was the words Stanley Made in USA. Is this normal for replacement hinges or are they just what someone found to use? They are heavy built and have a removable pin.
My 25 tudor hinges are Stanley also.
Dave_Sosnoski has done a lot of research on the coupes. Iím 90% sure that one of the items he shared a while back was that Stanley (yes the same one that makes the Stanley tools still today) used to produce the hinges used on some of the coupes. If you do a search on that and/or just contact him he can confirm that one way or the other. Bottom line they fit and work great.

Yes - I have seen the Stanley logo on hinges. The logo I've seen is the "sweetheart" logo which is SW inside a heart. The SW stands for Stanley Works and the heart is in reference to the name of it's long time president William Hart. This is the logo they were using from about 1920 - 1935.
Thank you Jack,Hap, and Dave. I just assumed that there would be the Ford logo on them. The writing on mine is in about a 3/8 in square and so small I had to use a magnifying glass to read it. Thanks again for your replies.
