67 C50 Exterior door handles

I am replacing the door handles on my 67 C50 and the new door handles are not drilled the same. The originals are drilled straight and the new ones are drilled at an angle.
Has anyone else seen this? Are all C50's this way?
thanks

Re: 67 C50 Exterior door handles

Its 67 vs 68-72 thing, you'll need 67 year specific handles. C50 use the same door handles as the small trucks of the same year.

Re: 67 C50 Exterior door handles

When I look up door handles they all say 67-72, no separate 67 handles.

Re: 67 C50 Exterior door handles

They're all wrong, your only options are a used handle from a 1967 only or modify what you have to fit

The difference in handles (and doors) is----- in the handle, the screw (bolt) hole is at an angle compared to the contact face of the handle.

In the door--- the mounting holes in the door are horizontal and the re-inforcement inside the door is vertical (because the mounting screws are supposed to go thru the door and into the handle Horizontally.


in 68-72 doors the mounting holes in the door are slightly offset because the screws go thru the door at aprox. a 15 deg. angle.

You can elongate the door holes-----but, the mounting re-inforcement on the inside of the door is still vertical-----which means as you tighten the bolt it wants to rotate the handle downward.

You need an angled pad for the screw to tighten against, As well as elongating the holes.

As I mentioned, its not a major job----but I'm having a problem believing that none of the parts suppliers either know it or are remotely interested in the fact that they wont fit.
I searched far and wide for perfect doors and due to the fact that the doors are already painted I really don't want to screw with them.

Thanks for all the input, since I do have the old pitted handles I find a place that can rechrome them. Weird that it was a big truck only thing. My 67 C10 doors were normal.
Thanks again!

This is before I started taking it apart again to paint it.
