Default 1973 Cadillac Hood Release lever

Does anyone have a Cadillac hood release lever ?

I just need the lever bolted to the hood.
The one I have has a broken spring.

If you do, let me know.

Thanks !
Darren

The '73 & '74 Cadillac hoods are exactly the same. I would assume that what you need is as well.

But just to be sure do you need the safety catch bolted to the hood or the latch bolted to the raditaor support? That spring brake on the safety makes it a chore to close the hood

The part bolted to the hood is what I need.
The handle you use to release the hood to lift it.

Yes, it makes it hard to deal with the hood with the spring broken.

Any help finding one is appreciated.
I will be in MI next week so I can give a US address for shipping.

Thanks again all,
Darren

Let us know when you locate one. I will be back home tomorrow night. I know that I have one off of my '74 parts car if you need it.

Nothing so far.

That would be great if you can check yours.

Thanks very much,
Darren
