    Someone is going to have a set of door handles for a long time at that price! The shipping is also outrageous.

    I would wonder if there aren't a few in a junk yard somewhere that just need some TLC and a re-chrome. Larrbeard might know where some could be found. A locksmith who specializes in classic automotive might be a good source. These guys are great with locks but I don't know if they have a source for the original door locks and such. They could certainly fix up a set if you could find them.

    Thank you for the reply. Yes, been looking around and no luck at this point; at all. Willys are not very popular here where I am at so its a road trip on mail order for anything of interest. I will keep looking though, for sure needing a set.

    There is a set of N.O.S. ones on Epay, but hold on to your wallet;

    I've seen that set on ebay; several times. but just cant justify that kind of money on a door handle, from the country of Turkey(if I remember correctly), concern with exchange rates, and last but not least-trusting that amount of money in that direction?? That's crazy money for a door handle.

    I found some exotic parts at https://montanaoverland.com/.

    It is the world's biggest Jeep graveyard. I don't know if the old guy who ran it is even alive any longer --- and you had better hurry before it starts snowing.
