Door Latch Striker Plates - 1950 versus 1953

I have a 1953 Chevy truck with doors from a 1950 Chevy truck. I ordered new striker plates for a 1950 Chevy truck but they do not fit on the door jamb of my 1953 Chevy truck - mounting surface of the striker plate where the screws go in is about 1/4" to 3/8" away from the door jamb and of course the new striker plate screws I ordered are not long enough. Which striker plates should I be using with these doors?
