    I lost the post /s about lighter is faster- printing parts and speed talk. Anyway here is almost a pound of savings for your 1961 and up.

    Pictured: top to bottom:

    1 random 1961 and up outside door handle - 11 OZ

    2 random 1961 and up door handle- its a bit lighter 10 OZ.

    3 1953-1960 random door handle 6 OZ and they fit any year from 1953-66

    I would guess if you sorted through several, you might find a lighter pair.

    My 53 goes tooo fast now. Maybe I should consider putting on the later door handles. While I am at it I guess I should put the radio, heater, rear seat, spare tire, jack and lug wrench, horns, bumpers, and some other things I have removed to save weight. LOL

      My daughter told me 10 years ago to get the car lighter to go on a diet so I did and I weigh 25 lbs. less. Down side is I added a 471 GMC blower to the project adding back probably 100. Oh well we can always counteract the weight problem with boost, (PSI, not the drink) .
