Hi Alexandre,

Have you thought that the few members on the website may not know the origin of the front bonnet catch and we just go down the scrap yard and find one similar and adapt it to fit.
Also you may find the one on your car may not be the original one anyway?

Kind regards
Tony

That is my car, and yes the answer is difficult, I did not build the car and I do not know what car it came from.

I think that you could use both parts from most cars of the 1960s, look in the vehicle breakers yards.

Hi
Was not that type of catch fitted on some of the early Fords (Anglia, Zepher Etc.)

Would suggest the catch may well have come from the donor vehicle that supplied the other componets.
