I need a latch for a '25 coupe. Are the repros sold by the vendors any good, or should I look for an original? Many thanks, Dave

Hi David,
I purchased a repro latch from Lang's as my car was lacking one. It fit fine and works well. Our cars require the earlier style key as the Improved Car key is too large in diameter to fit into the deck lid hole.
Hope that this helps. Bill

Thanks guy's. That helps alot. I wasn't looking forward to chasing down an original one if the repros work OK. I'd rather have an original, but right now I don't have any latch at all. At least I can get something to hopefully keep the lid from banging quite so much. Thanks again, Dave

Any other pros or cons? Thanks, Dave
