Just had an email question about door lock knobs and thought I would post what I know on the website for reference and link to from our Help Topics page.
See picture at bottom for reference:
On the 63 & 64 parts cars (and one 65 75 series) and driver cars I’ve found the following for door lock knobs:
- Plastic matching the darker interior trim color on 62 series (far left in picture)
- Chrome for DeVilles, Fleetwoods and Eldorado’s (2nd from left in picture and most abundant due to production #’s)
- 75 series: they are thicker but have pulled them off both in chrome (3rd from left) and light grey plastic (far right). I’ve parted 2 1964 75 series sedans (6723), one 1964 75 series limo (6733), and one 1965 75 series sedan (69723). I did not record which lock knobs came off which 75 series so not sure if they are for a particular year or a difference between the 6723 and 6733.
