  • '54 Commander Hood Prop

    My '54 is missing its hood prop, which I realize I can order from SI. My question is, in addition to the retainer clip that holds the prop (which I have), does the rod mount to anything else when stowed?

    There's (supposed to be) a retainer clip on the other side of the front, which support slides under.

      I got a new retainer clip from SI but it did not fit; the rod is too thickClick image for larger version
