I was looking into part numbers the other day for hood latch/catch to see if A-Body was the same and it is other than Grand Prix in 1966. This part number 9782784 is the 66 hood catch/latch for all 66's other than the GP. GP is listed as 9785255.

65 they list them as All 9778926 8.083 All LATCH 1 1965 1965 8-6

I checked my stash and can't find my extras, but they do sell new on epay and other places.
