Default Anti rattle door buffer

Has anyone a picture of the rubber buffer that's fixed to the A post that helps the door from rattling on a 289?

Very early Cobras with bolt in brass pin, metal washer, rubber washer, and hex nut? (Same as late AC ACE and ACE RS2.6 chassis.)

Or

Most Cobras, win a push in rubber bumper (same bumper used with AC Cars supplied standard side windows).

About ten years ago I collected original samples from several cars covering production of most Cobras and all 427 Cobras. I reverse engineered the design, had a mold made, and had hundreds of parts made for individuals and shops that wanted some so there are still probably some new ones around as spares still.

This is drawings I came up with to have new parts made.

Dwight, LMH, Mongoose930 and 1 others like this.

A hole is drilled in the A pillar in line with the socket in the door. The socket gets filled with a flat head screw
