Internal door handles

PostPost by: Bigbaldybloke » Thu Aug 12, 2021 10:27 pm

Help, long story, but I’m missing my right hand door internal handle and the spindle and linkage it fits on. It’s the early version which I believe came from a Vauxhall Viva. I have the actual lock and external handle it’s just the internal part. Can anyone help, I’ve been checking eBay regularly for months and nothing has turned up.

Sorry, I posted it in the Plus 2 section so thought it would be obvious, but it’s a 1967 Elan Plus 2 with the lever type internal handles and Austin 1100 external handles with integrated locks.

I think I might have located the internal door catch mechanism so just looking for a pair of handles. There is one tatty looking one on eBay but I’m hoping for something better, see pic below of what I’m after.
Thanks
