Vent Window knob $.88

Nabbed this vent window knob for my 84 C20 at one of the local pullaparts (Upull a part) for $.88. A steal, I was there to get the pigtail that goes from the firewall to the alternator, mine broke when I was replacing the starter. Got the pigtail then started looking at the truck a little more. Ah, a vent window with the knob, didn't know how to take it out without breaking the window. Came back the next day after looking at a Youtube video. All the parts are there because I took it out.

I would have gotten the whole window assembly or both if available. Can always be sold and originals are hard to find that are reasonably priced in decent condition.

It wasn't the correct vent window. It was too small. I just need the handle for my truck. My truck was missing only the handle. I guess I could sell the vent window without the handle...may go back.

I'm thinking of going back to get the bench seat.

Yeah, they have a bench seat in burgundy vinyl, looks like it's in better condition than my blue one....for the time being.

Re: Vent Window knob $.88

I have figured out that any part that is in decent condition is an automatic buy!!! Even if I do not need it or it does not fit my truck. Squarebody parts in yards are rare. I could even sell something to a fellow member to help them out.

I don't find very much at all near me.

Near you they don't rust, so they don't get hit and crumple. LOL
