    Does anyone know of a place that sells a replacement rear window latch? Mine is broken and missing parts. It drives me nuts rattling down the road. I'm thinking a soft top would be nice right about now.:D

    I know there are a couple aftermarket places that sell them but they run about $400.00 buck....and that's with NO hardware.

    If your missing the internal hardware you'll have to put the call out to your fellow 1st gen'ers here or on www.67-72chevytrucks.com

    Sorry,I have no extra hardware.

    Here's a link.
    Do a search for "lift gate"

    Thanks for the link. They had a lot more lift gate stuff than I'd found. Still, not quite what I need. I need the hardware for the latch on the lift gate. It doesn't seem like it's going to be easily or cheaply found from a vendor. :frown1:

    Well Greg speak for yourself, I for one consider myself very cheap and easy when it it comes to my 1st gen:D especially when it gets me more parts!

    I am 99% sure that the burbs used the same hardware and latches as the Blazers. Sounds like its time to go yardin!!!

    Give Vintage Chevy a call and see what they come up with. They're located in Fremont and might have that hanging around the shop, or they might be able to locate it for you.
