I am slowly putting my 1964 Plymouth Fury back together. It has been apart for 15 years. Right now I am trying to install the headliner but am missing a part. I've looked everywhere in my parts stash and everywhere online and cannot find one. It goes on one end of one of the bows. I have one as pictured. Any ideas?

It does look like it goes on a spark plug but it is actually a bow pivot for the headliner nearest the rear window. One per side. Much heavier than the ends on a HV wire. I've scoured the internet. I may just fabricate one. Thanks Fellas

Welcome...got a message back from my brother:

Best of luck finding or making that little goodie!

Found it! Actually my wife found it inside the B pillar using a boroscope. We also found some sockets, screws,nuts and assorted other magnetic debris. Thanks for the help.

Meant to say "C" pillar as this car is a hardtop and lacks a B pillar.
