1967 Inside door handle orientation

Finishing up the new interior and I bought the car completely blown apart and never saw the actual orientation of the interior door handle, I installed it like in the picture just because I thought thats the way it went from memory, just not sure if thats right or not?

I think I recall a pretty funny debate about this several years ago that went on WAY too long.

Correct me if I'm INcorrect.

I believe it is supposed to point straight forward on a level plane.

Re: 1967 Inside door handle orientation

FWIW, the 1967 El Camino Brochure shows them horizontal several times as well. But I would guess it is also a matter of preference, it isn't like you are modifying anything that isn't reversible correct? Mine are like the top picture, but I know that the door panels have been off at least once about 15 years ago.

Re: 1967 Inside door handle orientation

Original 64-67 door handle installation was level to the ground (horizontal). Note that at least one of the repro Mfr's handles are made wrong (have the teeth oriented wrong) and cannot be installed correctly.

The window crank orientation (when rolled all the way up) varied by assembly plant -
  • KC - rear crank level pointing to the back of the car, front crank level pointing to the front of the car.
  • Balt - rear crank level (or one tooth up from level) pointing to the back of the car, front crank one tooth down from level pointing to the front of the car.
  • Fremont - rear crank one or two teeth up from level pointing to the back of the car, front crank one or two teeth up from level pointing to the front of the car.
  • ATL - all 4 cranks pointing halfway between down and toward the front of the car (this is the best looking of all of them, in my opinion)
  • Framingham - ??
