Window Cranks

Hi, Has any seen a mechanism like this for a window crank? Seems to be after market (maybe) it is 1/2 inch od with 11 teeth. all the after market cranks have 16 or 32 teeth. I have tried them and they wont work , just hoping someone knows where I might be able to find some to fit before I cut these to fit. Thanks

The limit on jpg files is 300MB, if you have the software like whatever came w/your camera or p-shop, etc, just resize.

You can put a stock type reproduction window handle if you file the shaft so it has a square end. The stock handles on those era cars had either a cross pin that was a snug fit, and held in by the escutcheon, or a screw through the handle that went into the end of the shaft..Are you looking for a repro or fancy handle?

A description of the actual mechanism would be helpful in determining which way to look for handles. There were aftermarket suppliers of universal mechanisms to the body manufacturing industry. Folks also installed whatever they could find , as many of those 'glass bodies came with no hardware for windows.

Later, mikey
