Who has a picture of the original type window handles & vent handles. I have a guy at work who says he has a set. I need to know what the originals look like to be sure.
Found these on the net but not sure.
Can some one please tell me for sure are even better post a picture of them.

Those handles are 55 to 57 Chevy and they are for 59 and 60 Chevys.

here are the correct impala handles for 61 to 64 Impalas (belairs had a different door handle)

Originals are better than reproductions.

These handles that you have pictured look very close to what is in my 1962 BelAir station wagon. The car is in storage, so I can't say for certain if they are close or exactly correct for my BelAir. If those are for sale, I might be interested in them. thanks

Junk the ones in the picture are not correct for 62 Belair's. All 62 door handles and window controls have a the shape like the link I provided.

The only 62 Belair difference is the handle to open the door is separate from the Impala handle located under the long Impala arm rest.

I think they are later than 1964's. All 61 to 64's Impala Belair and Biscaynes have black knobs and they have ribs in the round portion of the chrome vent and window handles.

The Belair interior "door opening handle" does not have a knob in it for 1961, 1962, 1963 and I think 1964's.
The pictures are from a "all original 1963 Belair door and rear 1/4 panel" with the handles I am referring to.

The ones in Andy's first photo look like '53 and '54 Chevy window crank handles.

My 64 has the same handles Paul. Thanks. If his are the same and he doesn't want a fortune for them I'll buy them and have extra's.

I just looked in my 1965 Chevrolet parts picture book, and I did find pictures of 1962 car interiors. It is in the section that shows pictures of the interior for yardage material for seat coverings. You are correct, the Impala and the BelAir both use the same window cranks etc.. I did notice in the picture for the Biscayne that the handles are more like the once pictured in the first post. I looked it up in my parts book (group 10.664) and it verified that the Biscayne is different from the 1961 - 1964 BelAir & Impala vent window handles, but I couldn't find pictures of the handles themselves.

I bought a set just like those for my '53 Sport Coupe, although not from this particular vendor. I found the knobs were very stiff to turn and when I complained about that, he said they were all like that and put me on his blocked bidder list.

Paul, 63 Belair had rear armrest ashtrays? How about the 62 Belair? Hardtop and sedan were different, but did either have ashtrays?
