Betsy has a short side curtain hook at the base of the windshield post, and a longer, curved hook midway up the post, held on by a round head slotted screw.
I see that the vendors now carry the short hook, but not the longer, curved one.
Am I imagining it, or did the vendors used to carry both types of hook?
I see the hooks being sold in sets of 4. Both in a 2012 Snyder's and a 1978-79 Sacramento Vintage Ford. Snyder's also sold them each. I assume they would have all been the same length then.
Good to know. I've always picked up NOS originals at swapmeets, and they look as Mark described.
Not sure my notions are worthwhile here but the 24 out here has a short hook on the forward post mount bolt and the longer hook's half way up under the slotted screw like yours Mark.
Why the change to all short from our vendors? Was a detail lost? My catalogs don't go back as far as Rich's do tho so I don't think I'm of any help.
Doubt the longer curtain hook was ever repoped.
You will probably have to search out the longer ones. They also have a bend at the end too. The long ones do go under the machine screw that holds the frame to the stanchion.
The repops are all the shorter style for the lower stanchion carriage bolt.
The rusty one Dan posted is correct. The one taped to the post is an aftermarket replacement.
