    Vent Window Handles

    HI Guys,

    I have a 69 and am looking for new vent window handles while I replace all the weatherstripping. I tried Brothers, but the holes are too small for the van. does anyone know if Nova handles will fit or have a source for the correct ones? I can have the old ones re-chromed, but easier to put new one on if I can find them.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    nova handles will fit, they rotate just a little further than the originals but the fit.

    Vent Window Handles

    Mike,
    For my 1st gen I bought my vent handles from classictruck.com for 1967-1972 trucks
    P/N's VWH6L & VWH6R The package markings are from manufacture "COUNTERPART Automotive"; P/N's 60-7022916 & 60-7022917
    For your reference for 1st Gen the handle shaft hole is for fit to 7/16" dia shaft - so maybe this is what you purchased. I don't know the size for 2nd gen - that is why I provided the above info.

    Now to 2nd Gen
    In the GM parts book I see that 1st gen P/N's are not the same as 2nd gen which uses P/N's 9712394 & 9712395
    Which possibly could be a diffent size i.e. guess maybe 2nd Gen are larger?
    Vehicles using the same P/N's as 68-69 G10:
    68-69 corvairs
    and as panelmanrd already shared - 73-74 Nova
    also 68 to 72 cars

    Part # Change ?

    Looking up those part numbers showed a change. Classic Chevy has no part result from those numbers. Looks like they have changed their numbering system? Perhaps they are now referenced as DR-1412 or DR-1414?
    Also Tucker's Classic Auto carries the Counterpart line but not those part numbers (60-7022916 & 60-7022917). Perhaps C-7289 for the driver's side only? What do you think Gary?
