To all,

since years I am looking for these rare latches.

Does anybody know where this part can be find or from which car they are?

After years I found only this very similar parts. Trunk lock from a Grecav Eke (Grecav founded in 1964 in Gonzaga /Italy).

Maybe is this a following version from the first original one, so it would be interesting which is the car with the first version, which looks like the Mangusta ones :-)

The part on the left is essentially handmade from what I have seen. All four of mine are different from one another, and cannot be swapped around.

Christian, if it makes you feel any better, at least I think you have found the best clue on the most obscure part in the car...Only the Ayacsa AC box may be close. The plastic used here around the spring pin seems to describe a different decade than the Mangusta...But still, maybe useful start to making replacements. See https://www.grecavricambi.it/r...rtellone-posteriore/ , 29 euro, it seems the Eke is a contemporary car...  Part number BAF33-0007409. 

I need all 4 pins, and won't have a real car without them. Even, Anybody who has theirs and also the phone number for a machinist, my Paypal is ready...Or even, if anybody could be so kind as to provide pin drawings from their car--Lee

Hi Lee,
yes that's right, I have got the parts from https://www.grecavricambi.it
Price incl. delivery within 10 day ran perfect.
But until now I not really found time to see if the parts fits.
To all, please stay tuned on the topic, maybe this topic will be solved too
Thanks !!

Contact Larry Stock at Pantera Parts Connection (PPC) Carson City NV, he has Mangusta parts too, but moreover his dual business Polymer Plastics Corp (PPC) specializes in plastics and metals machining!

I bribed someone into sending me a Grecav Eke pin, unfortunately didn't get enough time to get a sense of whether it fit in the Goose latch (in between when DHL dropped off and when I had to be on the plane back to home...). But here are some measurements; the bolt and shoulder are wider (M10 on Grecav, I remember 8mm on the Goose). Of course, the Goose pin is longer on the tooth, but I suppose the 2 key measures are the distance to the 'hole' center (6.0mm from where the pin starts to taper).

I tried to seat this into the Goose latch, and wasn't sure if it was seating deeply enough...There are no identifying marks whatsoever (to give a clue to a manufacturer).
