The same fold-down seat latch pair were used from 68 thru 70 as factory installed items. They were replaced by the 67 pair for service.

So different in some way but will work as a replacement. Guess that is coming from a MPC

The 1968 version has a two piece plunger bar. The visible end is chrome.

The length of the knob for 69-70 was shorter.  The rest of the latch was the same.
