Exclamation window cranks needed!

does anyone know where i can find these? i need 2 complete assemblies for the rear window (counter-rotating) and one for a side window as well. i could probably get newer assemblies for the time being, but i love the retro crank look.

thanks for any help!

I don't know why, but I have one of those cranks, and 13 others that are the single sided type. I thought it was a replacement. I do like it though.

yeah, i know. i like it better than the single sided ones. really nice and retro. a friend of mine with a 64 overlander (i believe) has the double sided knobs on the little slat windows, and the single sided on everything else. guess they just kinda gradually ran out of em on the line.

btw, i just got my replacements from vintage trailer supply. they bolt RIGHT up, and look great! i might end up replacing them all, just so they're new again! vintage trailer supply has come up with numerous new offerings since this original post. where would we be without them?

A Merry Can, the crank handles you got from Vintage are cast aluminum (or some metal alloy)? I'm looking for a bunch of the double sided ones, but I don't want plastic. Thanks, Dar

yep, they're aluminum just like the originals. the operators look so good, i think i'm just going to replace all of my originals, rather than restore them! very good job, vintage trailer supply!

Thanks for posting your experience with the VTS cranks - we've been needing some new ones for our '60 Caravel. VTS hasn't let me down yet!

After having found two extras when I cleaned up the garage, I was hoping to get a small fortune for them on Ebay. Now VTS has them. There goes my retirement.

Brad, there's still hope. They also work as great gas cock operators on vintage fireplaces...there's a whole new market for you! Just trying to help.
