If you find a cache of them, let me know. Mine are spit pretty bad.
Hi. Yes those are the right handles for the 619 only and like Gord says Canadian Frontenac. Mike and Neil Butters can make you brand new ones and with a funtioning lock in one too. Later Lance Haynes

The 619 and Frontenac differ here. The Frontenac has a curved fancy handle.

Thanks guys. Yes I know the Butters can made the handles. Interesting my handle grips match Frank and Waynes 619 but the backing part seems different. Franks is almost diamond shaped like the bumper medallion on my 32. Could be Dominion Motors used 614 backing but 619 handle ??? The games go on with US D's versus Can D's and Dominion using any part to make a car in the end. Better watch out Gord, fancy Fronty handles on my D if we should happen to meet some day, ha ha.
You know I've seen 28 Chevy handles on Ebay and they seem very close to our handles except the backing is flat. Almost bid on one until I noted the flat backing attachment.
