mickus, to my knowledge not a part being reproduced at this time. The "A" bracket was used on the early 71 with the dual support brackets. After 6/14/71 the hood latch support brackets were changed and went with the single support "B" bracket. The D1ZZ-8182-A bracket was replaced by D1ZZ-8182-B in 79 and the "B" was discontinued in 1995. Occasionally they will pop up on E Bay. If your ok with used I would try Don (OMS) or Motorcity Mustang as both are on site members/Venders and have worked a lot of magic for everyone here!

Sold all of mine a couple of years ago

I had a few NOS ones - they were bringing 100.00 each on ebay.

Thanks Don, if you happen to locate any please let me know.

Yeah Steve, I've sorta had my eye out for these for a while now and figured a couple would pop up but they haven't.

If anyone has a couple, any condition preferably rust free, please let me know.

Cheers...

I appreciate the support RIBS!
I can make a few, they are not original and I could possibly make them to look closer to OEM.
Here is what I made for my car. Not pretty, but functional.
