WTB 66 Eldorado Center Console Latch
« on: February 02, 2018, 11:15:26 AM »
Hello;

Im looking for the chrome U shaped part that attaches to the bottom of the upper door of my center console. This part then attaches to the lockimg mechanism below to allow the console to be secured. I have attached a pic of the item im referring to. Thank you in advance.

While I am not familiar with either car, this might just possibly have been used (to save $$$) on a Riviera as well. You might at least check with Bob's Buicks. It's worth a phone call.

I bought a console a few years ago and the latch broke during shipping.  I have yet to find a replacement.  I bought a similar repro one from (I think a GM), but it was not the right size;  I finally found another broken console with a good latch :)  I then bought a third one that was damaged for parts to make a spare.  Please post if you ever find a repro one as I have a full spare console with a broken latch.   Chuck
