Yup, those are working brass hinges! They are model RR items, scale "barn door" strap hinges, that I get here locally at a huge RR shop--they are very nearly to scale, work great. I discovered these hinges probably about 30 years ago, have used them several times on various cars over the years.

1:25 scale. Chassis is Revell '29 A Rat Rod, body is modified AMT '29 A roadster, with a lot of the body moldings replaced by strip styrene, and opening doors. The firewall and front of the gas tank are reworked with strip styrene to correct stock appearance--no need back then to punch clearance depressions into these panels, as a flathead Ford V8 will fit just fine in the same space as the 4-cylinder did.
