I do not have my parts books here at work. What does a door handle pn. 1338560 fit?

It's the late one, the '61-'66 plated, not stainless one that protrudes instead of recedes.

That one is still available NOS.

Does it fit a Lark, or Hawk? I does not look like the one on my GT.

There were two or more manufacturers of these late type and the only ones left now are '65-'66, the only difference is the roundness or lack of it on the corners of the push buttons.

Studebaker could not afford to make more than one style handle at a time, they are all the same on all models and all FIT '53-'66 cars and '60-'64 Champ Truck.

My parts book lists that particular part # as fitting ALL 1961-1963 Cars. 1964 Is listed as part #1360980

I do not recall off-hand what the difference is. I do know that prior to 1961, the door handles were stainless steel (part #298974)and not a chromed piece of pot-metal. I looked through my box of take-off door handles (chrome)- and see no external difference in any of them. The only visual difference I can find is how the push "button and wire" is installed. This cannot be seen if the door handle is on the car.

All outside door handles (car) from '53-up are pretty much interchangeable. IE.. they will FIT... though they are not "CORRECT" for various years.

Thanks guys. I got these in envelopes that said pn1360980, which is a 64. The handles that were in the envelopes said 1338560. I was just trying to figure out what I had.

Thanks.

Chuck
