will woke up with a clear head today figured it out. the latch was there just bent out of shape and I got a lock of a A body. for got that the El Camino in these years went to the Malabo body. leave it to GM to great a different hook for every body. all that was left of the original was the barrel, the hook and a bent spring. we were able to swap the hook to the good barrel with the trip tab still in place. then straighten out the latch. the only difference in the lock was the length of the hook. it only took one stab to get it set to the right angle so it would release. good thing I figures out how to get it open with out braking anything. now if e-bay could just lump all the glove box idem together. found a picture of the latch listed under full body. I was looking under Biscayne.

funny how a simple thing improves the appearance of the car. looking in there at that flopping glove box door was depressing.
