    Cargo Door Rod Clip

    Does anyone have a source for these door rod clips? The hold the side and rear cargo door rods to the latch. They are typically removed when servicing the latch or removing the door rods and sometimes they break. Any help appreciated.

    I seem to remember somebody making new ones at one time, can't remember if it was this site or vintage vans site.
    I posted it on there site, after doing a search with no luck, also did search on Epay & Clarks Corvair. nothing yet.

    FYI: I chased down the P/N history on the rod part numbers. Interesting by 1969 GM went to the same part number for the lower rod on all doors - So I would "assume" any lower rod should be good...

    I have two doors I recently got for my 1966. My truck has no rods in the side doors. The New used doors have only upper rods. Don't know their year. So I need one each L & R door bottom rods. I will chk the package today for some pics. but have no rods handy to test fit.
