67 vent window missing latch - how to replace?

The vent window in my 67 is missing it's latch. I see that replacement latches are available in the after market.

How do these mount? Does the vent window need to be removed from the door in order to replace the latch?

Thanks.

I think your best bet is to seek out a bone yard replacement of repro......

The repro set shows a roll pin for installing?

If the stud is missing you'll need more than the latch. Try to find an entire window with glass or a complete frame. Check eBay.

tom991 is right. eBay has some for a decent price right now. Such as this. Mustang Vent Window Frame RH Fits 66 67 | eBay

68 Coupe, 289, C4. It'll buff out!

Thanks. I'll have to take a closer look at what I have. Makes sense that there's a stud that should be there to mount the latch with a roll pin - there's no stud on mine. The listing on ebay is more pitted than what I might look for. It's looking like I'll need to change out the entire frame then.

Interesting. Thanks. I'll have to see if they have them for '67.

Makes me wonder if the old bracket is inside the vent window somewhere?

Looks like a near duplicate thread here: http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/vi...placeable.html

I have several used extras, shoot me a PM if interested.
