I just bought a set of these. If they are any good that is not a bad price for a pair.

Someone on Facebook said they picked theirs up on Amazon for a bit cheaper.

Maybe the price for these is coming down across the vendors. Or, a cheap knockoff?? I hope not.

The half door ones do. There is a nice listing of what they fit (except for AMC cars) at the ebay ad.

I was wondering where we were going floating! :) We have had a lot of rain here in the Mid-West!

I think most of them on Ebay are Chinese reproductions. The ones I bought a couple years ago, are already faded. Most of the black is wore off. The OEM ones are in the $70-100 range each.

Many of us know that Jeep Wrangler 1/2 door handles are direct replacements for our small bodied cars. And, if you don't mind black, they are now extremely affordable and appear to be of a good quality. From what I can tell of the set I bought, they appear to be stamped steel, not pot metal and are a bit heavier than the OE ones. The tang that always like to break also appears stronger. Mine came without gaskets so if you need some you will have to find a vendor who provides them with their handles or separately.
