Bert’s may have good or restorable originals
They’re better than repo

Same latches were used on Coupe & Tudor. I like the originals better than repo.
ebay is another source for originals... I see them turn up there occasionally.
Chuck Kuntz had some listed for sale here.. could check with him and see if he still has them available.

Agree on the originals. Reproductions came with my pickup when I bought it. The drivers side wouldn’t lock and I welded up the tab that slides under the tab to keep the handle from turning.

My Coupe had original latches that were both in really sad shape. I purchased repros from Snyder's and they work perfectly. I did need to slightly adjust the striker plates on the B Pillar after installation. I even modified the right side latch to work with a slide lock assembly.
