I am looking the rear door stays for a 1959 Morris Van. This consists of a block with an eyelet and rod that attaches to the inside rear door post with 3 screws. The rod is used to hold open the rear door by locking into a small tab welded onto the door, like a garden gate. I don't have a part number for this which would be helpful. Does anyone out there have a pair of these or can someone provide a part number? I may have to have this part made, as it seems there may not be one available. Thanks

Mike, thanks for the reply, but the stays advertised are for the sedan, not the van. The van stay system is unique and very different. Mario

Have you asked them Mario?

It's either Ware, or
someone breaking

The link also gave you
the English name.

Thanks for the photos Mike. I did contact them along with all the other main suppliers in the UK, no one has this part. In the photo you sent, it is the assembly on the bottom of the door that is holding the door open, not the strap. It is a casting that is mounted with three screws on the inside door post and has an eyelet and rod attached to the casting like your photo. Because there are few of these vans in the US, I may be able to find one at a breakers yard in the UK, but so far, no luck. Mario

Mario, Mike forwarded your request over to the Minor Chat section and we been having a discussion. Below is a link of someone making his own. It starts about half way down.

It looks like he choose to make his a bit longer because the originals held the doors straight back and his appear to be angled outward.

Great post Jim, I will look into this option which is cheaper than machining a copy of the original. Mario

Hi Mario, users can't move topics to different forums, only moderators can do that (me).

I'm moving this topic to the Buy & Sell forum since you're looking to Buy....

I can get them - but they are not cheap from a friend down under - i bought a pair for $150.

Unless you make them like Jim had suggested he is the only supplier.

If you find some cheaper let me know because i will need some soon.
I just got a new box and the originals are missing.
