Hood Pin Set 1965-1973 is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bad Bear 5 from Fairly good aftermarket reproduction My hood studs and round escutcheon plates were fairly rusty, so I opted for this replacement kit. This kit appears to be a Chinese reproduction, which is pretty close to the original, but not quite. The studs are a slightly smaller diameter and the holes through the metal plates are a bit smaller as well. The nuts are thinner than the original, so don't torque them down to a grunt and a bump. If you use your old (through the hood) studs you will have to enlarge the holes on the new escutcheon plates. The new studs come to a fairly sharp point, like a target arrow, rather than being rounded like the original studs. Going by at 120 MPH, no one will notice the difference in the reproduction studs, but if you are going to enter the car in an ORIGINAL type competition, these are not the studs for you. Again they look very similar and perform the same duty, but are of lighter materials; the studs are smaller and pointier, also the bolts are thinner. All in all they look very similar to the original

Rated 5 out of 5 by MOTORMAN from EXCELLENT QUALITY AT A GOOD PRICE I am very happy with this item. Excellent quality at a great price. I installed the hood pins on my 64 Ranchero today and they look great.

Looking too replace the stainless hood pin plates on 69 mach 1. would these match up for replacements?
These are a universal hood pin kit, without knowing if your pins are factory or dealer installed or an aftermarket part I cant say if they will be a perfect match, you may have to drill new holes for the mounting screws.
