1966 exterior door handle missing something

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I picked up a 66 and I'm trying to fix a few things. I've owned 3 of these cars so far and they are my favorite Riviera. It's been 17 years since the last one so it's been awhile. 

 

1) I seem to be missing the part that sticks out and hits the door latch.  What does it look like? I'm wondering if I can replace it. 

 

2) I'm also missing the clips that hold the driver seat switch together. Anyone have an extra for sale or pic of what I'm missing?

 

 

 

Thanks for the help,

Raul

Mr. Raul

 

There seems to be a missing shaft from your handle which are available but maybe the shafts need trimming?

The switch clips may be found in salvage yards out west. Heres a pic of mine.

Just type in PO2 for your search for caps. Theres an NOS base set on sale now for a bargain! $699.

Hi Paul,

  Beautiful set of caps... but they are described as 14 inch. Did Chevrolet manufacture these "Corvette" caps in 14 inch size for lesser models? I know Buick manufactured there mag style caps in both 14 and 15 inch sizes.

Hi Tom.  Chevy did offer 14 and 15 inch sizes.  They were an option on the early 70's Chevelle which utilized 14 inch wheels.

Thank you for the pics. I can see what I’m missing now.  Doesn’t look like the bar that hits the latch was threaded.  JB weld might work.
