I'm having a problem finding or getting a picture of the rear door catch on the clamshell, currently restoring an old 1954 Chevy Surburban Carryall clamshell model and both door catches that attached to the body are missing.

Here is a video, the catches that are attached for the moment are not the correct ones,

Also a video of the car itself,

And a picture,

If anyone has pictures or somewhere you could possibly purchase in the UK it would be great, if I had a picture of the original could possibly make one myself.

Thanks in advance.

You are presently in the 1949-54 passenger car forum. I have asked the moderator to move this thread to the truck forum, where you will likely receive more helpful replies.


Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.

The lock and striker you need fits 1947-1954 Suburbans.
Try for the parts. If any one will have them it will be him.
