MOPAR Stricker Plate Identification


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a couple of striker plates which were found in a box in my shed.

I was wandering if someone with a little bit of knowledge about these could put a year and vehicle to the ones I have a ? against.

Top LHS 1936 Desoto. (after 2 more)

The top middle is solid and no moving parts - 36 Dodge?

The top RHS 37-39 Dodge, Plymouth & Chrysler ? (2 NOS for sale)

Bottom LHS is like Desoto but extended at bottom 36 Chrysler ? (will sell the 2 I have if I can get the Desoto replacements)

Bottom middle NOS - 1939 ? (for sale)

Bottom RHS - Ford Latch ?

Any assistance appreciated as they may help someone with their restoration.

The one on the top left looks like the ones for my '36 Dodge. I have 4 of the lower center ones on it now but they don't look safe to me. I need 3 more of unbroken originals. I think anyone of the like kind would work ok as long as you had the matching dovetails for the doors.

Yes, the top left seems to break maybe due to small moving parts and I like yourself have a number of broken ones.

Maybe the top middle one was introduced as a replacement due to the breaks, being solid and having no moving parts.

Still like to identify bottom centre ones car with a view of finding a new home, I think the retracting dovetail was to be some sort of improvement that

is why I thought after 1936..
