    What latch would go here. The 28-29 are four bolts. What takes a three bolt? One side is missing. The other has old piece (see photo ). Car is 29 Model a sport coupe.

  2. those 3 holes are for 1/4" flathead bolts that basically help hold the wood in. the little piece inside the pocket is what the door latch closes against. the door latch is in the door. the part you showed from the Snyder's catalog is a dovetail and not a latch

    this is what you need:

    Sorry, yes not the latch. What dovetail
    Would it take then, same as coupe? The door latch lines up with that hole.

    Thanks stogy. Just that little piece of metal holds the door shut.

    The top pic of the two is the striker plate for 28 29 which tightens into the door post or latching area on the quarter...

    I think 30 31 uses a wedge shaped striker plate

    Thanks guys. Thought the bolt holes had some other function- Guess just to clamp the wood and hold the striker secure.

    Here's pics on my Jalopy...;)...showing some warrior of survival scars and low and behold wood is non existant...

    One thing of note is the wood is not to do with the striker plate bolts...there are cage style nuts for those I believe.

    The last pic is an alignment pin of sorts about 6" to 8" below the striker area on the door post.

    By the way @Vanness my Ole Hotrod is a 29 Sport Coupe and most of these type of parts are common to Coupes not Roadsters...
