Anti Lock-Out Door Locks?
Hello everyone. I have a numbers matching 1970 LS5 and am going through every detail on the car to ensure it is era correct. I don't have a build sheet but am trying to have the car be as close to original as I can tell. My question is this: My passenger door, when opened and the lock is manually put in the locked position by hand, will pop the lock back to unlocked when the door is shut. My driver door does not do this, it stays locked when the door is open, I manually lock it, and then close the door.
Some research has told me that the door locks are actually supposed to be like my passenger door where the lock pops to unlock when the door is closed, not like my driver door that stays locked. So, is this true, and if so, where can I find the anti-lock out mechanism so I can correct my driver door's lock? Thank you all for your help!
