Correct door handle position
« on: February 28, 2017, 06:10:10 PM »
Hi folks,
I'm wondering what the correct door handle position is on 67 standard Interior.
Saw some mounted straight forward and some mounted in  a 45 degree upward position.

Thanks Homer

Unfortunately I don't have a copy handy but pretty sure the assembly manual shows how each it "clocked"

My assembly manual is at the shop but I know on a 67 standard interior the door handle points down. I think about 30 degrees. On a deluxe interior it points upward.

Ignore how goofy it looks, but this IS the way they were shipped from the factory. My OCD could never accept it and I leveled them out back when I had my
67 Fastback...looked better to me but if you are "judged", you can bet there will at least be mention of this detail on your score sheet ;)
