1957-1959 Hood Safety Latch Kit
We now have a kit that adds a hook type catch to the 300 CD hood (it may also fit the E). This is a great way to add protection to your original hood latch. Our second catch is two machined plates and a hood spring hook added to existing bolts. The stock 300 catch is retained as is. The new catch is positioned off to one side and no drilling is required to install. You pop the hood to the first click, reach under and free the added safety catch.
NOTE: Please call us at 978-772-3303 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before ordering. The angle information is important - to make sure the kit you receive is correct for your vehicle.

IMPORTANT - Please measure the angle of the hood pin and include it in the Special Notes section on the checkout page. We will need this information to send you the correct part.
