Replacement Exterior Door Handles.
« on: August 21, 2013, 04:05:21 PM »
Replacement AMC small bodied car door handles.  Many of us know that Jeep Wrangler 1/2 door handles are direct replacements for our small bodied cars.  And, if you don't mind black, they are now extremely affordable and appear to be of a good quality.  From what I can tell of the set I bought, they appear to be stamped steel, not pot metal and are a bit heavier than the OE ones.  The tang that always like to break also appears stronger.  Mine came without gaskets so if you need some you will have to find a vendor who provides them with their handles or separately.

I'm just wondering where you got them, as getting parts in Canada is a little more difficult.

I got worried there, cause it says, "May not ship to Canada".

that typical on eBay?   You can tell I don't shop there very much.

Depends a lot on the vendor if they will ship to Canada or not.  The nest store used to and they pretty much broke even on those shipments.  Still, it was a service to AMC folks.  Perhaps, something like that will be done again in the future.

Same handles as Jeep Wrangler 1/2 doors. Just opposite numbers, depending on the seller. The holes for the screws aren't threaded. I just took the paddle and put it on my chrome part.
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!

I think this is worth bringing back to life as I was a bit panicked about finding handles for my new addition.
