Probably answered this many times before but.....for a 1963 Avanti, is there a source for the truck striker, the "u" shaped piece that attaches to the trunk lid?  Looked at a number of parts sites but only find Hawk and Lark  strikers.  Also is there a reinforcing plate that the striker attaches to?  Our trunk lid only has two holes.

Thanks for the help!

From memory the striker only has 2 holes they attach too but don't quote me as I haven't seen mine for a while.

Hawk and Lark strikers will not work so you need to get the Avanti one. Not sure if they are available new but there should be a few second hand ones around.

I might even have one but I'm sure there are plenty in the US.  Try Myers Studebaker .

Sorry not to respond sooner was out of internet connection area.  Thank you for the response.  I have sent a quarry off to Myers to see what they may have.  If no lick ther may try bending my own.  Will waste a lot of rod but hey isn't that fun of owning these cars?!!

Thanks again
