37 ford hood latch

Hey guys, My name is Leo I am looking for a hood latch for a 1937 Ford. I would greatly appreciate it if any one might have some information on where I can locate a replacement or OEM part.

The hood latch or the striker as the photo shows? What is wrong with your latch? These things are pretty indestructible and last for many life times.

What makes you think you need a new one? Could it be simply an adjustment issue?

Alignment on your latch is VERY critical, here is a way to do this. Tip of the day, door alignment 5-29-12

I learned this trick from one of my Mentors working on cars just like yours.

37 Ford Hood Latch

Thanks for the feedback on the hood latch striker. I am looking for this part because I simply don't have one.
Thanks for the suggestion of contacting Dennis Carpenter I haven't checked there.
