This is NOT a link to someone else's part, this is ..... My Personal Listing The auction ends Thursday the 19th at 10 PM EST. (1) GM NOS left hand (drivers side) outer door handle. Part number on the handle is 9834745. I believe this part number must have been superseded by part number 9835145, as that is what is what is on the label on the box. This handle also fits : 1971 - 1978 Oldsmobile Toronado. This is a brand new NOS part that has NEVER been mounted on car. It still has a protective layer of plastic on the backside surface. You will also see there is a new gasket included as well. Functions as new. In the interest of full disclosure ... I wouldn't say it is 100% flawless upon close inspection. However, the imperfections in it are very MINOR in nature. Being that they are very minor ... they are very difficult to photograph. In the last of the (3) pics ..... I drew a green oval around the worst of these imperfections. Again, they are very minor so they are tough to see. Note : In some of the pics that show the "pivot" area of the handle ... There is what might look like rust deep down in the crevices. I can assure you that it is definitely NOT rust. That is actually a reddish-brown grease you are seeing. Pics :
Greetings all. I'm a new member to the AACA Forums. I was lured in by the extremely helpful posts by Pfloro, HurstGN, and Rivnut that kept coming up during searches for technical advice on the 1981 Oldsmobile Toronado I purchased yesterday. I am a long time Toronado fan. My first car was a 1985 Toronado Caliente that I purchased in 1996 when I was 17 years old. It was black metallic exterior and gray leather interior, digital dash, and the "classic" grill. I loved that car. Unfortunately, in 1998 during my first week living at college instead of commuting, it was stolen from the dorm lot and wrecked. Since then I've had an '83 Caprice V6, an '85 Continental V8, a '94 Cutlass Convertible 3.4DOHC, a 2004 Cadillac CTS, and a 2003 Chevy Avalanche. Financial difficulty a few years back caused by losing a job forced me to sell the Avalanche and terminate the lease on the CTS two years ago. I helped a friend restore a sad 1996 Roadmaster Estate and as a trade he let me drive it for a few months since I was without a vehicle of my own. Since then I've been sharing a 2004 Honda CR-V with my partner. Till yesterday. Yesterday I brought home a 1981 Toronado with 88k in very good condition. I purchased it from the nephew of the original owner. It's had some modifications done to it that I will be reverting back to stock (exhaust, radio, cruise control) but is otherwise nearly perfect. (pre-purchase pictures below) I'm glad to finally be back in a Toronado. It's like seeing a dearly missed old friend again after 12 years. Another note, I am the owner of CheersandGears.com, a website dedicated to GM and other domestic manufacturers. We discuss cars both old and new. I have access to the GM, Ford, and Chrysler test vehicle press fleet, so occasionally I post reviews of the new stuff coming from them. So a big thanks to those members I mentioned above. I hope you don't mind if I pick your brains often for advice.
