Hood Pins were never an option on the 1969 Road Runner. Dodge did offer them on 4/7/69 - Chrome hood hold-down pins (code J45) were released for Super Bee, Coronet R/T, and Charger R/T. Hood hinges and front latch were retained.
Unless they were installed by the dealer. If that was the only thing 'wrong' with an otherwise mint factory hood I'd be very tempted to leave this Day 2 modification on the car--if I were having this car restored--rather than go shopping for another hood off another Road Runner in spite of it being the same piece.

As far as the exhaust tips are concerned, you're right, that would be an easy fix. What I want to know: How can any competent restorer make this blunder?? It's a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned.

"Old school" is cool school.
