1972 Eldorado Door Pull Strap Decorative End Caps
« on: May 05, 2017, 10:12:34 AM »
Hello!  I am slowly restoring missing bits on a newly acquired 72 Eldorado convertible.  I am looking for a set of the wood look pull strap decorative trim pieces, and I think 71-72 work.  Please feel free to direct message or email me at boseephuss@gmail.com.  Thanks!

Good to know.  I still have 1 (oh boy!) that survived, but I really would like to find 3 more.  I have found some junkyard cars with them intact, but they want to charge for the whole upper door panel, which with shipping is simply unreasonable.

Post a photo of the one you have.  I think I have some of those straps, not sure of the year as they were in a box of misc. parts.

Here is the best one I have available.  I will see if I can get a better picture.

I know I have several in various states of repair led over from my 72 Eldo. However I won't be back home for a couple of weeks. Please pm me and if you still need them when I get home ill hunt them up.

The one I have does not look like that one.

Well, I thought I had these figured out.  Was contacted by Gary Benefield as he had a set.  I sent the money, but have not heard back since the time it was picked up.  I am hoping there is just a delay with him verifying they shipped, but I may still be in the market for these  ??? :-[

Looks like I was scammed.  I am still in the market for these.  Thanks!
