Does anyone know if anyone is reproducing just the handles?
Thanks

The above should read have samples. Must be fat fingers.

Are these the same or different from 1911 handles?

I have one, a bail shape, in rough shape. I am considering casting a copy for my 1912 Omnibus.

From my understanding the 11-12 are the same. These are not the Stirrup/bail style. I have a pair of brass handles that I thought were the 12 Ford still but later found out that they are not Model T.
I have the Ford Part Number T-4292 and a partial drawing so I could get the Ford Factory Drawings
Here is a picture of one.

You might check with Ray Wells. He has reproduction handles on the 1911 bodies he produces.

Mike;

The picture you posted is of a 1911 car door and handle. Are the ones you are looking for the same as these?

1911 doors latch in the front and are hinged in the back.

1912 doors are hinged in the front and the latch is in the back.

I'm traveling right now but I'm pretty sure I have a repop and possibly the plates that I don't need to keep. I'll try to check this weekend.

Mike;

I've found the plates that mount on the door, I haven't found the handle yet. I haven't forgotten, just haven't found it yet. I don't think I've loaned it out or passed it on. I will keep looking.
