Does anyone know of a source for a 1963 Suburban rear barn door latch? I just bought the Burb and the right rear corner was hit breaking part of the rear door latch on the right door. The bar the latch connects to is fine. I was going to weld onto the ear and grind to fit but the back side of the latch is about worn out as well so I would rather replace if possible. I have been looking and found a lot of front door latches but not so much for the back. Were these latches used in anything else? I feel like I have seen them on maybe a Willys?

Thanks for any info.

    In response to l4stout

A quick follow up on the door latch. I ended up spending a couple of hours with a wirefeed welder and a file on the front part of the door latch and the two catch points inside the door and it now works fine. Given the lack of response, I am guessing there are none available unless you found a NOS somewhere.
