Default Door striker plate 37 Coupe

My 1937 5 widow Coup'e has door striker plate attachment captive nuts with .850" between centres. The only replacement door striker plates available from Dennis Carpenter have attachment holes with .750" between centres. Does any one know where I can purchase 2 off striker plates with .850" between centres ?

Have a look at Drakes selection from earlier years.
I'm pretty sure one of them will fit.

Thank you swoopNZ for your help,I have written Bob Drake to confirm their 1933/34 strike plates have the .850" distance between hole centre lines that I require. My 37 coupe is ex NZ, I brought it to Australia in 1990 after buying it in NZ in 1975. It has not been road regrestered since 1964. Restoration is now underway while I try to remember where the various parts of it come from. Buying a basket case is very expensive and challenging not to be recommended unless you have deep pockets and a lot of spare time and resolve to finish the project.
Thank you.

Another helpful thread courtesy of the "search" function..

I got some stainless striker plates in a box of misc parts I bought off a member a couple years ago.
Went to install them today and find out the holes don't line up.
Thanks to this thread, now I know why.

stainless for my 36 pickup are temporarily discontinued, so I ordered a pair of the cast iron ones.

Thank you again FordBarn, for posting the question and the helpful answers that were posted.
