Had the same problem with my 67. Could not find a 3/8"-16 nut (AMK only makes up to 5/16"), so I made one and brazed it in place. After painting it looks just like the original.

I am not that good...I will have to look for a junk one and press the nut out of a fender extension.

The inner front bumper extension is only $16.00 from Classic Ind.

I have found that most of the Repops. don't have the correct nut attached.  They are usually a hex nut.

I don't think anyone makes a duplicate of the original "pierce-nut"; they were auto-fed into a punch press, which had a die set that pierced the hole, inserted the nut, and peened the corners to retain it in the panel in the stamping plant. We hated them in production - if you cross-threaded the bolt, it would spin the nut out of the hole, and you had to repair it with a loose hex nut.
