Langs sells a latch for the 23-27 Coupe. Don't know if it will work for the earlier Coupe but might work. There is a picture of it on pg. 77. Good luck in finding an original.

I am no authority but this post says they are the same from '16 thru '27.

I bought one of Lang's repro latches for our '25 coupe a few years ago, but before I got it installed, I found an original one and used it instead. The repro was almost identical to the original, just a couple of minor differences in the way it was assembled, but overall was the same. It was one repro part that was very good. I used the original just because it was original. :-) Dave

Randall is the keeper or what some might call the strike plate that's on the on the truck opening still there on the bottom of trunk wood framing? It the piece the latch catches on to.
