    My body man lost the door latches for both doors. I'm now looking for replacements. Can anyone provide me with the proper part number for reference?

    I found some here (link below) would this be the correct part.

    As well, can anyone tell me if the 1970 GT 500's had a manual choke. Mine has one and some are suggesting it was not stock. I really don't know.

    Thanks,

    Dooley

    Yes, that latch will work, but I suggest an original

    Yes, all 1970 GT500s had a manual choke factory installed

    Dooley,

    I'm late on this but how did the latch work out for you?

    The latches worked fine, no issues. Only one problem, I forgot to order the screws for them and they use a special thread. So I had a hard time finding ones to fit. But find them I did and the latches are working fine.
