I'm looking for an external door handle that were used by Mitchell Body builders in 1934. Probably a generic style from the period??
Also looking for an internal door handle x 2.
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Southbound,
Swapmeets are a likely source of handles. Take a sample as there are millions of small variations.
I don't know where you live but the Bendigo swapmeet (biggest in Aus) is on next weekend. (This w/e is Yarra Glen HCVCA Annual truck show)
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

If you haven't already had a look, food for thought.

Thanks for the responses guys.

Morris, I was at the Pegasus Swap Meet recently and didn't see anything suitable, but did pick up an Inter C series headlight bucket with bracket. B)

DNO I've had a look online but have since found another way of finding the right parts. Old Mate at work is building a 1940 Ford and suggested TCR components in Bayswater who have lots of door handles and window winders for sale and I can have a look prior to purchase. :)
