1967 Cadillac Eldorado Exterior Redesigned Door handles.
« on: April 26, 2017, 02:41:43 PM »
I have a 1967 Eldorado I am restoring.
I am modifying some items on the Eldorado.
I decided to change my door handles on my Eldorado.
I felt the 1969 - 1970 Grand Prix door handles looked better for the style.
I choose these because they are being made as reproductions.
A friend had some rusted out doors from a Grand Prix but the door handle portions where good.
We used portions of the Grand Prix doors to insure the handle's buckets would work.
We had to slightly modify the latch in order to get a smooth motion penning the doors. It was very slight.
The pictures show the original door handle and then the changing to the Brand Prix handles.
The handles work great and are very smooth in their operation.
