1955 2nd Series - 1957 Chevy Hood Latch

There are many parts and pieces to consider when it comes to restoring an old pickup to its original glory. On many, if not most, of the classic 1955 2nd series - 1957 Chevrolet trucks the hood latch is worn out or broken. Tuckers Classic Auto Parts has manufactured a brand new reproduction hood latch that is designed to replace the old one. We want to provide you the comfort and confidence in knowing that your hood is securely closed while you are driving your Chevy down the road. A broken hood latch, hood springs, or hood latch plate can potentially cause more damage to your truck if not attended to.

Reasons to Get a New Hood Latch For Your 1955 2nd Series - 1957 Chevrolet Truck

  • Sometimes buying a new one is much easier than trying to fix an old one.
  • If you had to replace and purchase a new hood latch plate or new hood latch springs, it may be a good idea to go ahead and get a new hood latch as well. While the reproductions are good, you may have a better fit with all new pieces instead of trying to mix old and new.
  • A reproduction piece such as this one from Tuckers Classic Auto Parts is just as good, if not better, than the original.
  • It is important to have a working hood latch so that your hood doesn’t open while you are driving.
  • It is important to have a working hood latch so that you can protect everything that is in your engine compartment.
  • Any piece on a classic car or truck will wear out over time. A hood latch is no exception.
  • Maybe you had to replace your hood with a reproduction. Sometimes the old hood latch mechanism will not fit as well inside the new one.
