Exactly what that is for. And the only reason I can think of is if kids are riding in the back, they can’t accidentally play with the latch and open the gate.Keeps the tailgate unlatch mechanism from working until the window down AFAIK. Don't know why it was necessary, not like you can access the rear handle easily if the window isn't completely down anyway.

Thanks. I lucked out and found one on eBay that was reasonable :-)http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/showpost.php?p=5621043&postcount=1
If you really want the name, download the parts and illustration manuals from that link that apply to your truck. Probably listed (with part number) in the parts illustration book. If all it gives you is the group number, you'll have to resort to the parts manual. Unlikely it's easily found as an NOS part for reasonable price, but you never know.
Finally got around to attaching the latch assembly and ran into two problems.
1) there’s a plastic guide that is broken, and this holds the rod in place that locks handle from opening while window is up. Any ideas on how to find a replacement? Pictured attached (labeled A)
2) missing a connection from the handle to open tailgate, which connects to the latch assembly. (labeled B)
Neither parts are listed or showing replacement on the sites Ive checked. Any thoughts?
