1932 3w door latch

On 1932 3w ford coupe's what kind of assembly is used for the door latch? Is it simply a bear claw latch and the handles simply conect straight to it from either side of the door? Or does it have the whole arm assembly? Im having trouble finding what i will need for my doors.

Door latches are either stock (MAC's Auto Parts or similar Shop Early V8 Ford & Mercury Parts at MACís Antique Auto Parts. Wescott's http://www.wescottsauto.com/ are two) or they are inside only handles with a solenoid or cable operated releases such as the Rocky Hinge reference above. This is something you have to determine yourself as to how complicated you want to go with bell cranks, operating rods and wiring.

Gotta ask the question, and please don't get offended, but did you bite off a huge chunk without fully knowing what you got yourself into? That isn't a problem as there is plenty of talent here on Hotrodders to help as long as you give enough information so they can dig in with you to get through
