I don't know if the part is available (and I'm not familiar with them), but if not you may want to consider using 56 backing plates which don't have the eccentric .

Check with the vendors that handle sedan parts - they may have the part as I assume the sedans used the same set-up.

Check with Hill's and CASCO for the part, used.
