Davrian door handles

Post by edgedj » Mon Jul 25, 2011 1:16 am

Does anyone know want the door handles are from on some Davrians? You know the long slim chrome ones that you lift up instead of the wire behind the door or the allegro ones I had on mine originally.

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave, I think they are possibly Morris Marinas
Ask Graham Cashmores dad he will know he owns one.

I think the ones on my old mk5 were from a Hillman Avenger

Yeah, They were Avenger ones. Fitted Mainly on the Mk5's.

Mk4's had the Allegro/Marina handles.

I remembered why I'd ruled these out originally, they don't have integrated locks do they. So I've ordered and got a pair of Mazda mk1 handles with integrated lock barrels, they look just the job...

Hi

I have a Mk 8 and would love locking door handles. It has the lift up catch as standard. Would the Mazda ones fit the Mk 8 and if so can you be a bit more specific about what parts I'd need (model and year etc. or even a part number)?

Cheers

John

I used Lancia Beta ones on the Mk 4. Very similar to the Marina (I think) type, but more elegant somehow...and fully lockable.

Not many Betas about these days though.

Thanks

Food for thought.

Too much else to do right now (like getting a working engine/carbs/exhaust system) so it's not a priority.

The lotus door catch fitted to Davrian's can be locked if you connect them to a suitable lock barrel.
