RR Phantom door latch needed.

Recommended Posts

Our Springfield PI was embodied as a town car in the mud 1930s. We believe it is a Brewster body. We need the left rear door latch mechanism. Most likely RR bought it from a jobber. The piece we have is missing several pieces. I am going to use an endoscope to see if the pieces are at the bottom of the door. However a better piece that has not been subject to repairs is preferred. The colored dot on the right mechanism is a junk spring someone added. The 3 dots on the left mechanism indicate missing parts.

Ed Minnie will chime in with who the hardware vendor is.    Those look identical to what I've seen in coachbuilt Dietrich circa 1930/31.

 The company name escapes me but they’re out of Syracuse New York.  Made  of unobtainimum.  I gave him a source to check out.

Reminds me of a 1929-1930 Franklin part - perhaps same-similar enough or at least worthy of more research  (perhaps ask Mike West on this forum)
