Post Door latch assembly - 37 Ford

I'm building a '37 Minotti Ford coupe, and want to install functional stock '37 handles and locks, but I'm not able to find the latch assemblies anywhere. I have the bear claw latch and strikers installed to hold the door, but the trick is finding a latch assembly tht will accept the door handle stem AND the lock assembly stem to actually lock the door.... any thoughts, ideas, hints, tips, contacts, .... will be muchly appreciated.

Hey, Stubby

This was done on a 54 Chevy pickup, but it might give you some cool ideas -- here's a guy who did a little fabrication to make the bear claws work with the 54 dor handles:
