The double hinges for the entrance door were first used in mid 72 and up.
You could possibly have a 73.
The hinge pins come loose because of severe vibration when towing. You should balance the hub, drum, tire and wheel as an assembly.
You should also check the striker pocket for wear as well as the lock striker bolt.
Drive the hinge pins back into the hinge. Using a center punch at the top of the hinges, dimple the hinge to hold the pin in place.
That will eliminate the need to replace the hinges.
CAUTION: If you do not properly balance the running gear, the pins will again come loose.
At that point, the hinges must be replaced.
Pins for that hinge are not available.
