Looking for window crank knobs
#1
Can any one tell me where to find the correct style window crank knobs for my '73 Grandé?

I ordered from CJ Pony parts and the ones they sent were incorrect.

In the photo, the knob on the right is correct. It has a recess on the back that fits over the top of the crank handle.
The one on the left is one I ordered.

I've looked at several sites online (OMS, Bill's, NPD, etc.) and can't find the right ones. Or at least I can't tell if they are correct because only the front of the knob is shown so I can't tell if it has the recess.

I appreciate any ideas.

Thanks

Mike

mjseakan, from early 72 production (from 10/1/71)  and forward, Ford switched to a window handle with a non-replaceable clear knob. The new clear knob you purchased  is something the aftermarket parts vendors have come up with that fits the before 10/1/71 handle. You are going to either have to purchase a new 72-73 style handle  with the permanent  knob or a 71 style handle that accepts the separate knob.
I am out of town for Christmas until the first of the year, so without my reference notes I'm not 100% sure of the exact dates, but they should be close. The majority of the  1972 (10-1-71-forward) style handles still used the handle with the decal covering the screw hole. (Sourced from the 72 Gran Torino)
During the 73 model year (approx 4/73) the handle was replaced with the full size Ford handle that had an open screw hole (can I say that here)?! and no longer used a decal.

Hope this helps you figure out what you may have!      Smile

scluff,

Thanks for the info. It's very helpful. Based on the images you sent and my build date of 11/72 it looks like I have the 72 Style.

So it looks like I have to buy the 72-73 style. I'll check out Motor City Mustang.

Thanks again,
Merry Christmas

I have a very original early September 72 built car and it has the 72 style crank with the round cover over the mounting screw.

WCCC has these on their website.... https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/wi...attribs=84

Reproduction window crank used on front doors of cars produced after 10-1-71 with no factory door speakers.
Replaces Ford part number D2AZ-7630322-A
Originals have a casting number of D3AB-6523342-AA.

rackerm,

I wish I had seen your bottom image before I ordered the knobs I bought. I would have saved me a few dollars.
I'm pretty sure the Bronco knobs are the same as what I ordered, based on the washer and 'stud' in the picture.

I guess I'll just pickup the complete crank.

Thanks for your input.

Mike

I am surprised they don't offer the correct style knobs for the later 72-73 cranks. I know I bought them many years ago but I can't recall if they were ford or repro.
