    I was finally able to track down the glove box button / latch for my 1964 cj5 with the smaller button hole in the glove box door.
    Just wanted to share the part # and link to the one I found on Ebay to help other people who might be in the same boat I was in.

    The Latch was for a 1962-1970 Charger Coronet Satellite. It's a brand new part that comes with 4 keys. There was a chrome bezel/retaining ring on the front but after I popped that off, It was an exact match for my old lock. The only funny thing is the keys are stamped with a chrysler logo. So happy to get the glove box door finally installed!!!

    Part #PY015C
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/133672821693
    Price: $46 TOTALLY WORTH IT!

    Nice. Just ordered one. The one I have is functional just no key to lock it. Also, this will add a to my already other parts from different cars collection (corvette, thunderbird and a chevy Astro van).

    Good job. Just make sure you don't accidentally lock it.

    Was the Astro van part a heater fan by any chance? Lol

    What year did they stop using the curved door catch?

    Congratulations on finding an NOS glove box button!

    To the best of my knowledge, Briggs & Stratton made all the OEM early CJ ignition and glove box locks and keys used during the 1960s. Unless yours was keyed differently for Mopar, one of the B&S key patterns used then may fit your lock. If so, you might get lucky and find a B&S key blank that matches the profile of the Chrysler keys, and can have it cut to match.

    No, it was actually intake duct. Apologies, turns out the part is for a 2009-2011 Chevrolet Aveo and not an Astro Van. I used it to replace a deteriorated aftermarket rubber hose.

    HA! Great timing..... I was actually just trying to figure out THIS MORNING if there were any decent replacements for the air cleaner hose! I bought an Omix one 3 months ago that is already starting to crack.

    Did you have to cut it or modify it?

    I've thought about using the cylinder from my old latch (which is keyed for my B&S key) and swapping it into my new lock but I don't want to chance breaking any of the little tabe off when i pop the back out. Maybe once I get through all my other checklist items I'll attempt it ;)

    No modification of any parts required. Only had to reposition the air horn on the carb. Had to use the hose clamps that came with it since the originals wouldn't work.

    Apologies, didn't mean for this to detract from the original topic of this post.

    All good! I actually had my air cleaner off today for a repaint so it's perfect timing.

    Did you get your latch yet? The mine showed up super fast (like 2 days).

    Also.....Does anyone know if there's a sticky page containing random parts from other cars that work to replace hard to find parts for our jeeps? I feel like this one and the chevy aveo airbox hose would be great contenders.

    I’ve been posting for years now that the glove box latches are the same as those used on ‘60s-‘70s Mopars. I’ve just never had a part number to chase. A little search goes a long way in our forum, but maybe a central heading with a listing of interchangable parts for other vehicles might help?

    Yessir! I believe one of your posts is what led me down the path of discovery. I almost pulled the trigger on a challenger glove latch but at the last minute I realized there was a slight difference that would have kept it from fitting. After digging a bit deeper, I found the coronet latch.

    55_willys_cj5's tip about the airbox hose from the 2009-2011 Chevrolet Aveo is awesome and takes the guesswork out of googling. For Example.

    An example of being a bit too vague would be all the posts about a heater fan replacement option from a "chevy blazer"... after a bunch of digging, I still haven't seen anybody actually post an exact part # or a direct link to a working option that is a direct replacement for the factory heater fan that works.

    I agree! a "central heading with a listing of interchangable parts for other vehicles" would be a HUUUUGE help.

    Yes, I did. Came in quick likes yours. Unfortunately, the house is a mess, water leak, and have stuff stored in the garage around the jeep. Hopefully the house will be back together by the end of the month, and I can get access to the jeep.

    Very timely resurrection of this post. The 64 CJ5 I bought this year came with a glovebox latch but no key. Just finally got around to taking it to my local locksmith who found a key to fit it, not he's got to open the cylinder to make an impression and cut the key.

    I found a set of original glove box keys off eBay a few years ago. You can see the difference from the ignition key, the glove box has a round head.
    Both the ignition and glove box are simple locks inside, compared to modern. They only have “wafers” inside that match the key profile. You can easily remove and rearrange them! to get your new key to work!
    I bought an extra lock (no key included) to have more “wafers” to use.
