What does 26 coupe trunk latch striker look like?
What is the best way to extend the hand wiper to fit the coupe?
On my very rusty but original '26 Coupe there wasn't evidence of a striker, the lock bolt when extended just fits against the inside of the cross-rail at the top of the lower panel. I'm watching this post with interest, if there was a striker, I will also need to find one. Respectfully, jb
My coupe trunk has no striker, and no evidence of one ever being there.
I don't believe there was striker. I think James is correct that the lock bolt catches the body.
Austin, I used a 1/4 flat steel plate to reinforce the panel then ground the lip for a good fit. hope this helps Harv,.
My 26 Coupe is same as above -- no striker.
Austin, the above pictures show what I was going to post until someone beat me to it. The T coupe latch is just a tab that protrudes under the rear body panel bracing: no striker. The Model A was different as it had a rotating finger that hooked inside a striker. Check the vendor's catalogs (like Snyder's) which pictures both T and A in the same catalog, to see the difference. If you need the vertical brace that the T latch locks under (pictured in the center of the second picture above, I have one which is rusted off at the bottom, but since hard to find; could be repaired.
Austin...I put one on...because my latch would not catch the lip of the sheet metal. I just made it out of some alum stock laying around the shoppe.
