Courier Mk1 hood and trunk latches

Post by JohnC » Fri Apr 29, 2022 11:53 pm

Hello folks, I'm new to the forum and trying to source some parts. Does anyone know of a source for the hood and trunk latches and covers for the Mk1 cars. Only one of mine still operates and I didn't know if any are being reproduced or if I will have to fabricate them. If anyone can shed some light on this please let me know. Thanks, John C.

A close replica of the latch can be found here: https://www.vintagecarparts.co.uk/produ ... udget-lock
You may have to file the mounting flange a little thinner though. They have the chrome "toilet seat" covers also, Moss carries the covers as well (TR3 spare compartment). Good luck!

Hello again and thank you folks for the parts sources. I ordered some parts from Vintage Supplies today and look forward to getting my parts soon. I put both sources in a file for future reference. I know they will be useful later. Thanks, John C.
