Got my door panels off to change the lock and handle gaskets with the correct shape early NOS ones I have.
I see the repro parts places selling cone shaped springs to sleeve over the quarter and full window regulator crank mounts, and the inside door handle mount, for behind the panel to push it forward against the cranks and handle.

They're in the 65 Mustang interior assembly manual, but for 65 full size Chevy too?
Maybe the vendors are just trying to expand their sales base?

I have taken plenty of these cars apart and can't say I have ever seen those springs on a single one. Not sure why they would advertise them for one either unless their information is just incorrect?

Thanks, you're the 3rd no I've heard.
They were a nuisance to install on the Mustang, so there's that, plus one less thing to buy.

My car (St. Louis built) has these on all 6 cranks, along with the plastic insulator.

I know for a fact that several of my parts cars also had them.

I'll be putting the door panels back on in the next day or so. Will have to look at my tear-down pix for placement.

I was in a LOT of doors in scrap yards through the years, more recently to get regulators to try to fix my brothers 66 convertible (still not sure if we're golden on it!). Anyways, yes almost every broken down old heap we were ripping apart had those conical shaped springs behind the door panels, on everything, except maybe the one for inside door release handle. But definitely the window regulator and vent window. They should be there.

i would put them back in with the plastic disc unless you want to prematurely snag and tear the vinyl on your door cards. factory installed them for that reason also.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone
I'll go with the cone springs then
I have the scuff protector discs behind the handles but I'm still thinking no for the foam discs for our cars
As an aside, my scuff discs are either grey or translucent white
I'm guessing different suppliers and installation done willy nilly as opposed to purposeful installation of say grey for door handle and clear for crank handles

Apparently these are the correct springs with less of a cone shape, who knows?

Ok, I can see these suiting the side window regulator, but not the vent window and door handle.

Working on my interior and grabbed a quick picture of the old rear quarter panels with the marks on the panels and one of the original springs.

My protectors are gray.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the pics Kevin
I'm ordering the two different types of springs
Seems original grey scuff discs have a second tiny hole unlike the repros
