Looking for this clip. Photo is earlier design - prefer style shown in drawing (late 65+) but will accept either.

Need three.

I always thought they only held the wire in place.

You may be thinking of the clips on the left side that secure the license wire (and engine under hood lamp if equipped) to the left hinge bracket.

This clip is on the right side and provides a positive ground for the engine lid. Came on radio equipped cars.

Found it. Wasn't clear on "Corvair Parts". Now I know that's a person selling Corvair parts. I thought you meant Corvair Trader site.

I've sent him a message. Thanks!

It's needed for a correct restoration.

I don't have one, but I don't have a radio either... yet.

Good to know I won't need one.

Thanks Flat-six.
