Frankenstein Door

My '37 Plymouth PT 50 driver side exterior door has no handle. The passenger door must be the original handle having a long rotating stem.

The driver side door can be unlatched by pushing my finger in the "hole". Where can I find such a door handle that requires a pushing mechanism having a 2 bolt mount spacing at 1 1/2"?

thanks for reading my dilemma.

George, you didn't say if it's stock or in the process of rodding but I would change the latches (both sides) to the bear claw style for safety in either case. From there any aftermarket handle both inside and out can be used.

I as well.. that is part of rodding to replace what does not work with what will work...
