Does anyone have a photo of an original window crank for a 1926-27 Tudor? I would like to know if mine are correct. Thanks.
This is what mine look like. The tip spins, there is a set screw to hold it on the square shaft and there is a nickel plated escutcheon. Hope it helps. Mike
According to the parts listing, (some) '25 to end of production were all the same for all closed cars.
Dave Sosnoski had been researching handles, and this was the last I recall posted...
The first photos from me were from an original April of '25 Fordor...but was it the '25-'27? Dunno
When I bought my car I had two front window crank handles and no rear handles. I purchased two new ones from Langs for the rear windows several years ago just so I would have something. Now that I am in the process of repainting the car and, eventually putting in new upholstery, I want things to be as accurate and uniform as possible. The handles that came with my car look more like the bottom one pictured for sale on e-bay.

Judging from the links I've seen, either the front ones are incorrect or, perhaps, the Canadian cars had different handles.
My 1926 Tudor handles look the same as Mike's and Jim you KNOW my interior is original!
The handles do look pretty new in my car though so I cannot be sure they are original.
The repo handles which all the vendors sell, are the type Mike pictured. They should have holes for pins as well as the set screw, Most vendors state that although they are close to the late T window cranks, they are actually Model A, but are the closest part available for T's.
Here is a pic of the handle from my Canadian Tudor. I only have two - they both are on the front windows and came with the car when I bought it.
Is this really what I have - a 1928-29 Packard crank?

Or maybe a Model T window crank was sold for $50.
I have confirmation now that the two front window handles were off of a 1928 Packard. I posted a thread on the Packard forum and received a reply today. Here is the reply:
Welcome to the forum !!
I have a 1928 fifth series Packard and I can confirm that the handle in the photo looks exactly like the ones on my car. I am not sure about the 1929 cars as these would most likely be sixth series and I have not looked at one lately.
Some of the handles on my car have crumbled and broken over the years, so it is good to know that they are available from time to time on e-bay. I must have a look for some. Do you only have the one?
So, it would appear that I need to locate four vintage handles or buy some repro Model A handles from Langs. Does anyone have four handles that they would like to part with?
When I was restoring my car, there were cranks on the front with holes for a through pin. The new regulators don't have a hole, and the T handles are not reproduced to my knowledge. I ended up using Model A repro cranks that are installed using a set screw, and Model A escutcheons from Snyder's for all 4 windows.
