Caravel latches

Hi All,

I am renovating my 1968 Caravel and ran into trouble with the overhead cabinets. Because some of the plastic latches broke and replacements were not available at that time, the former owner decided to replace some of the latches by magnets. I was able to buy new plastic latches at Vintage Airstream Supply, but without the metal counterpart.
Since they were removed too by the former owner, I cannot make the latches work. Does any of you have two of these latches lying around or maybe know where I can buy them? Picture attached.
