Hobbs I ended up using my original springs, never acquired any others! I have a NOS set of 1960 hinges with no springs PC gloss black setting on the shelf.
Sometimes I just don't pay full attention to the details.

Dunno who the greedy clucks are, but when I listed some hard to find emblems (6 were available) several moons ago, one greedy cluck bought all of them.

The OP that asked, other members who were interested, were shut out.

2nd in line. I need both springs for my 59. Right now a 2x4 works but I would like to line everything up before disassembly.

In 1960, Ford replaced the 1957/59 hinges with 1960 hinges. The '57/63 Ford truck parts catalog sez that 1960 springs must be used with these hinges when installed on 1957/59's.

C0TB-16796-A (replaced B7C-16796-A) .. Right Hinge / C0TB-16797-A (replaced B7C-16797-A) .. Left Hinge

Use with C0TB-16789-B (replaced B7C-16789-A) .. Hood Spring / Updated applications for hinges/springs: 1957/60 F100/1100.

The thing is, most ebay sellers haven't a single clue what the NOS (or used) parts fit that they are selling. Sometimes they list the Ford part number, sometimes not.

At least once a week, someone whines, moans that the NOS part they bought doesn't fit the same (if at all!) and/or looks different

Who is to blame? The buyers are, because they failed to research the part numbers, didn't ask for them if not listed....to verify if the parts were correct...before they bought them.

The 1957/63 FORD TRUCK PARTS CATALOG is available on a CD from hipoparts.com for 22 bucks. This is the first thing you should buy after buying the truck!

I'd be willing to bet you don't have it...because if you did, you would have known and I wouldn't have had to type this jazz.
I just bought a '57 F100 Panel Truck. I've wanted one for 40 yrs. I am also looking for hood hinge springs, #C0TB-16789-B. I saw your post that no supplier has them. Do you know of any spring manufacturer that can/will make them? Btw, I ordered the part number CD you suggested. Thanks for your help.
