WANTED: 1972 Crown bus rear window latch

Hi All!
Any idea where I could find a rear window latch for a 1972 crown bus? Mine broke and the window leaks a little.

Thanks!

Find a bus/truck dismantlers and see if they're breaking any Crowns. There are lots in junk yards right now awaiting their fate due to CARB rules that took them off the road at the end of 2017. I can't help you with any places near SF, but I recently bought some parts from Zachers Bus Salvage in Harbor City CA - he's got lots of Crown windows, but I didn't check if he also has latches for them. Crown mostly used Hehr windows, so maybe you could get something from Hehr? Otherwise see if anyone on the Crown Coach Junkies forum or Facebook group has some ideas, or perhaps Tom at the Pacific Bus Museum in Fremont would know?

Good luck!
