  • Door Latch Plate Color

    What color is the door latch plate supposed to be on a 61 Hawk. Everyone I have seen was body color. But I don't know if that is what they are supposed to be or if that is just the result of the cars getting re-painted.

    Thanks

    All I've seen on any year or model are body color.

      I believe they were mounted on the body when the body was painted, so they would have come with paint.

        Yes, body color. If you see a shiny silver one that looks new, it probably is! BP

          Yeah, zinc die castings don't like 6O years of door slamming.
