  • Needed, door pull straps for Avanti II

    My 1978 Avanti II doesn't have any finger pull holes in the door arm rests. I have been told that the 78 actually had straps on the doors to pull them closed. Aparently mine are missing and I Need a pair if anyone has them for sale. I assume they can be any color by simply adding the proper color vinyl to them.
    thanks, Dave.

    The door pull straps used by Avanti Motors were a generic part. I believe JC Whitney sells the same type of pull handle assembly, possibly in a range of colors.

      Searched the JC Whitney site and couldn't find anything like it.

          Looks like they have deleted the line. Its been a while since I looked.

          I think S.I. has the little chrome end caps, ask them if they have the straps too. I cant imagine them being a fast mover!

              Bob's correct, you need to strike up a conversation with Dan, Not only does he have most of the available parts but he is great to talk to and he will guide you on installation. Great resource!!.

                This is the strap used on my '78. This may help in your search.
