Door Hold back, 1964 Globetrotter

Looking for some door advice...

We are working on a 64 globetrotter that had the door and the lower front panel (curbside) damaged.

Damaged panel had a very deep door hold back that stuck waaaay out and was badly mangled. The panel has been replaced now and it's time to put on a latch to keep the door open and also to keep if from smacking into the trailer body if it opens to fast.

Does anyone know what was originally used?

I've found these two options; a nice plunge style holdback listed and also a replacement for the old tall version.

Any advice?

Let's have a polishing party: I'll supply the trailer and buffing supplies. BYOB (bring your own buffer)

This is what is in my '62 Tradewind. I'm pretty sure it was original.
