Back in the day - late 50's - a couple of guys I knew about apparently ran manual choke cables from the opening mechanism through the door and pillar and mounted then in the fender wells. One guy even retained one stock door lock key in the door.

Here is a couple of links on installing newer recessed door handles in older cars. They will give you some ideas you can play with.

Actually we are in Spring Valley, Ca. (San Diego county). We are real close to the Hwy.94 & 125 connector. About 50 miles south of Fallbrook to answer your question.

One cool way of doing it is to run the cable straight down thru the door post and floor. Attatch it to a paddle peddle located under the car, simply slide your toes under the running board or rocker pannel and lift the peddle to release the door latch. Some strong door poppers will help with the effect.

For legal height check with your DOT. Accepted height - above the scrub line. As I don't know the length of the body in front of the front wheels I can't even give you a ball park figure. Just remember that you have to go down and over the gutters of the road to get into parking lots, etc. If you can figure out what that slope is and use some trigonometry (always wondered when you would use it didn't you) you will be able to figure out how low you can go. Or you could just mount casters under the bumper.

Home Brew nailed it. The first time out with a freshly chromed bumper I got hung up going out of a grocery store parking lot in Bountiful Utah. And no that one wasn't quite above the scrub line.

Figure what roads you will do 90% of your driving on and go from there.
