Please tell me there's a dealer with new check straps in stock somewhere in Oz?

Else, i pray there's an after market version available?

They have to be the one part that all Ford Falcon, Fairlane & LTD owners of this vintage are likely to have to replace and yet i'm buggered if i can track any down.

Of course you can visit the wreckers; as I've done, but all the old girls with their door check straps still on board are way too tired to bother with.

Can you help me track some down, else tell me if other Ford door check straps from other model ranges fit?

Thanking you in advance,

John

Sorry to say but you won't get these anywhere. They have been obsolete for more than 4 years and no dealer shows any. They are NOT the same as any of the later model but I guess with enough perseverance you could make an AU/BA/BF type fit?

Thanks for that Papa Smurf, whilst it's not what i wanted to hear i guess i'll have to do some homework for myself on newer models (N.B. which Ford still readily supply check straps) that i can either modify myself, else have modified to suit my DF Series 1.

Should i succeed, i'll be sure to post a modification for all to share.

Well, at least you will be able to get the later ones for a long time as they are using them still on the latest wagon.
