Hood latch for 1932 Dodge DK 5

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Is there any body out there that can help my dad with a hood latch (top section) (the claw) for his 1932 Dodge DK 8? He lost it when out driving and cant locate it

That would be a DK8. It would have the center hood panel type latch/handle. Don't know where to get one, but I will tell you that your Dad's center bumper clamp on the front bumper is upside-down. Here is a photo of a latch like the one you need and the correct bumper clamp position. Sorry I don't have a larger/clearer photo of the latch.

It looks like I may have confused something here. I thought the 1932s had a center handle and no corner latches. I need more coffee. With the type of latch you show, you should be able to find it on Ebay under "vintage hood latch". Yours looks to be a match to the 1931 DG8 latch head....may also match Chrysler CD8.
