1950 Burby back door limiters

I just picked up a 1950 Burby and it does not have the limiting straps on the rear barn doors. Does anybody know where they can be found (aftermarket or used)?

Post a Parts Wanted ad in the Swap Meet (and look on eBay).

By straps, you are probably referring to the flat bars/stays - "check", used from 1950-1955st?
I have not seen a reproduction for sale.

Question for members:
The parts manual does not show a check listed for 47-49 Suburbans - was the 47-55st Panel door check also used on those early A-D Suburbans?

I have a spare set I could be persuaded to let go for a small fortune. PM me please.

There were 2 different styles used with the 2 position props. Which ones do you need ?

I used leather straps on my doors, ala Model A door checks; that's why I have a leftover set of factory originals. I figured these clunky metal things were just another thing to pinch my fingers and bash my head into blush

The Master Parts Catalog does not list hinges for the 1947-49 Suburbans, so I guessed those years might have had the same hinges as used on 47-55st Panels?

The different hinge ("single lock") is listed for 1950-1955st Suburbans.
