These are a little difficult to find in nice condition. I may have a used one. I'll have to look. I actually had one made out of vinyl for my racecar! haha The other thing you have to watch is they made one with three pins and one with four pins. The tree pin one is for the trunk lid on other models. The 63 hood uses the four pin style. Mark

That's what's so great about this forum! How many people would/have thought about whether their script was a three pin or four pin before ordering it? Same with the thread on the difference between ring gears and starters on manual vs auto trans cars? If you haven't lived it, you probably wouldn't know about the differences in them that either make them work or tear stuff up. I love this place! :D :D

I am also in search of one as well - @b1gkountry did you find one?

I tried working with a buddy's 3D printer to get one made but didn't have the dimensions right (and the 3D plastic was a bit brittle to try and mount).

Any one have any idea where I could get one?
