Hi, I have 1980 Brat and I'm looking for the inside and out door handles for my driver side door.
I've checked my local junk yards and can't seem to find any.
Right now I took the handle off the tailgate to at least open the door.
I know the handles on the GL/Leone are the same.
Any help would be appreciated

Moved thread to the 70's marketplace. Seems like a pretty common part to need.
