Proper hood latch helo
#1

Does this look like the correct hood latch support for my 1972 Mustang with 302? The one I have from my car is slightly different than the one shown and may have been "rigged" to fit my car after a wreck. It is unusable.

+1 to Auron73, the latch appears to be 66. They have (on the hood ) a centering pin guide and a heavy rod latch that is parallel to the radiator support. So the rod catches in those two hooks. Your upright support is from a 69-70 Mustang. They won't work on 71-73. They are easy to find. A well stocked Mustang yard on the east coast is Old Dominion Mustang. They also have an eBay store.
