Rampside Front Door Latch Crossreference

I need to replace both latches on my '62 Rampside. Does anyone know if they might match latches on other GM/Chevy trucks? I recall seeing a G10 Hydrogen Truck at Petersens' Museum. The door looks similar. I'm looking to get something as new as possible. I don't want to open the door up again for the next 50 years.

I don't believe there is any cross-reference. If there was, we would most likely have replacements from vintage Chevy truck suppliers.
Check with Calif. Corvairs. He has NOS available from time to time. Also, many times the latches can be repaired and new springs are available from Clarks.
