This is the door in door latch on the 60.

I'm not sure if it's the same on a 63. If it is here you go. Hehr Window Lock

Lee is correct, those are the beasts. Replaced them (both mine were broken) on our 63 safari and was pleased to see they fit exactly, lined up perfectly with the factory holes. While you are ordering you might want to pick up a replacement gasket for the door within a door also, if that rubber is hard it can not only leak but not allow the latch to work correctly (the spring of the rubber helps hold things closed)
