  • Good Quality Reproduction
  • New Proprietary Tooling
  • Black EDP Coated To Ensure Rust Prevention
  • Includes Upper Lock Pate, Pilot Bolt, Pop-Up Spring Retainer
  • Pre-Assembled For Easy Installation

Rick's Camaros offers this accurate reproduction of the upper hood safety latch which bolts to the bottom of the Camaro hood. When the hood closes, the pilot bolt is caught by the hood opening mechanism and the hook on the mechanism catches the safety latch just in case the hood opening mechanism fails on your Camaro. Replace that ugly, rusted original with this EDP coated reproduction hood latch from Rick's today. This hood latch assembly comes from new proprietary tooling from 2009, includes the lock plate, pilot bolt, spring, retainer, and jamb nut, and comes properly preassembled for an easy installation. Trust Rick's Camaros for all of your restoration and replacement needs for your 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, or 1981 1st or 2nd gen Camaro!

WARNING: There are two nuts which hold the pilot bolt to the lock plate. Please make sure there is one nut on one side of the lock plate and one nut on the other side. This jams the pilot bolt, keeps it from backing out and reinforces the plate. Failure to check this may result in part failure at highway speed which could cause the hood to fly up.
