Ford "Swiss" door latch, ID help

Recommended Posts

This door latch came with my '42 ford Ambulance.  However, it didn't fit any of the doors!!!!  Anyone have an idea of the application?

Thanks

It looks like 38 - 47 Ford truck - dunno if Swiss was OEM supplier or aftermarket replacement.  I think passenger is different.  If so, and your ambulance is passenger-based, that may be why it doesn't fit.  Even if it is truck-based, ambulance latches may be different.  They also may be different if it is a coach-built (i.e., non-Ford) body.
