Mid 65 S2 interior door lever assembly

PostPost by: jk952 » Sun Feb 11, 2024 10:31 pm

Supporting Barney and Brians info, I have/had an early S2 sn 39xx and a later 44xx: the early one had the Horizontal lever and the later car had the Vertical lever, they both mounted to the same type mechanism as Brian (ident: type26/36) pictures, both use the same outside handle and lock tumbler. (Incidentally the inside moulding of the doors between S1/2 and S3/4 are significantly different so a later mechanism highly difficult in an early car!)
Below is a picture of a Vertical RH unit (note a horizontal LH can look like a vertical RH if not examined closely the horizontal I recall are longer and more pointy at the end).

My apologies if this is Deja vu all over again. :D

If interested in the part in the pict. make me an offer just worth my time to mail to you. I have sent you stuff before if you may recall.
Best wishes, Jack (in Ontario)

Your top link didn't bring up anything relevant when I viewed it; lots of other interesting stuff though.
The second showed a correct lock mechanism though without a lock, ie a rear door latch;
The third is still relevant.

The S1/2 interior handles are unique and are just a bent pieces of metal.
The external door pull is unique (and brass), but it has been copied, I believe, and offered on this forum.

Here's another image of the up-turned latch, from the '65 Spacecraft which is advertised.

this is all good stuff, I do look on ebay.co.uk though I have no clue if my search is correct.

Thanks all for the help!
