Anyone have a 75 stingray? [hood latches]

I need pictures of hood latches from a 75 corvette.

I need pics of both sides. Please

Cant find any on world wide web of a 75.
Thanks

Have you tried a helper pushing down on the hood at the latch while trying to pull the release cord? When the latches get gummy it's the only way they open. If you're pulling the release lever by any means and somebody is donkey-kong-ing the latch they should open.

Latches at the rear, right?

Had to say it.

Ive got a 75 that I can snap some pics of if you still need.
Mine have worked ok so far but I decided to pull them out and install hood pins instead.
