Back several months ago Bob McFadden asked if I could reproduce a missing inside door lock for his sedan having seen one I had posted here years back. To try and complete the lock I wanted to get the proper screw used also along with nickel plating the others at the same time. The screw used was an 8-32 oval headed nickel plated screw. Bob then sent pictures he found online which also showed there was a small escutcheon placed under the lock arm.

So the only way to complete the project now was to make up a die to stamp out the escutcheon from scratch along with cutting the slot so it would fit over the lock's door shaft.

Since I don't think there's a market for many of these this will be a one time batch. These are nickel plated brass.



This is what the lock assembled look like as finished to the best of my ability. Haven't come with total or a price for the separate pieces over a three piece set yet. Bob

I have never seen this type of door lock. My 27 Tudor lock is part of the latch that comes up thru the sill. One direction opens the door the other locks it. When was it used?

Did the 24-25 closed cars have the same handle as the above? The one in my 24 coupe looks almost the same if not identical.

What I would like to be sure is the total length of the 8/32 used? I know it's less then an inch as I originally have purchased and I can cut to the correct size after the plating just don't want it to bottoming out in the shaft or have it too short either. So if I can get a little help with some of you that have original sets and can give me the length used it would be sure help. Bobdoor lock
