62 tradewind cabinet hardware

Anyone have photos of the original cabinet hardware from a 62?
We just bought a 62 airstream tradewind that the previous owners were remodeling. They replaced all 27 cabinet and drawer pulls with brand new ones. (which I don't care for). I would like to at least see what they got rid of.
any help would be appreciated.

I have a 61 safari, but I think it has the same hardware. Most of the pulls are black with brass cuffs at the sides. The latches are plated pot metal. I'll try to take pics today after work.

Ok, I went out and took photos of all the hardware. From the looks of the pics of the 62s, most appear to have the same hardware. Here's what I have...

Thanks so much! All of the handles in mine are the drawer pull type not the knobs. Do you know if you can buy them or something similar ?

So far as I know (I researched these because I wanted to replace some pieces) none of these are made any more, with the exception of the positive action latch on the top right (thery are made, but in antique brass with a brown-not white-catch). If you want an original article, you will have to start hunting. Otherwise, you can go for something that either approximates the look (like old bakelite knobs, for instance). You may have luck at antique shops that specialize in mid-century modern furniture.

FWIW, the little knob is found in only one place--a pull-out cutting board.

Hoop62,

How many pulls are you looking for? I am not sure how many I have, but I saved all of them when I gutted my 62 Tradewind last weekend. I also have some other 62 parts, if you need any? I have a post in the classifieds that list some of the other stuff. Let me know if I can help.

There are 27 in the camper. I would like to get as many as I can. The white ones are horrible.
