Giuiia TI Part Questions (Window trim, grab handle, door handle, etc.)

Gang,

As I beautify a few areas on my TI, I was wondering if you have leads to the following parts as I believe they are not being reproduced.

My passenger-side dash grab handle (Below the glove compartment) is cracked. It would be great to find a better used one.

Looking for a rear, passenger-side outside door handle in good, used condition.

Lastly, I think that the windshield chrome trim is not being reproduced, correct? If you have a good one, I am your man (I likely can repair the dings in mine but does not hurt to ask).

Originality question 1: Where all TI dashboards painted in body color on the front? My car is Grigio Grafite and the dash displays a consistent gray crinkle finish, even on the front/ vertical surfaces that are usually body color. The dash frankly looks highly original so I am wondering if my dash is correct?

Originality question 2: Is there a chrome strip between the end of the upholstered dash top on the passenger side and the dash? Mine does not have one but I saw pics of other early cars that do have one.

Thanks,

Mike

In my experience TI metal dashes are body color. I've had four, all 1967 or earlier, and this was the case. Owned a couple other dashes that were body color. Top of driver's side is wrinkle black.

Can't say on the chrome, not sure mine had it. Early cars had a fair number of trim differences.

I have some door handles, let me look.

I have two pass side door handles. I'd call them no better than fair with some age pitting. Will get pics.

One is front, one is rear; they have different length plungers inside. I'm just putting my own car's doors back together and realized this. So I have one you could use. Will post pic in the AM.

My pass sides handles. Both are serviceable but not much better than that.

When I was building up my Ti Super Rep, I found several NOS handles on Ebay. There are still good ones about, series one, and the longer series two.
Here's a series one :-

Hmm, do you have link for the picture of that trim? I think there had been trim from factory at least on some early cars..

Actually there is some sort of rubber pads with very thin trims on both ends of dashboard. These are ultra rare. The picture is from 1964 TI

do you mean the triangular end pieces on the A-pillar that is hold down by two screws? Those are hard mold plastic without a trim strip. The dark gray covers for the A-pillar go behind it (Or white as in this car. Even those appear color coded to the car ...). Or do you mean something else?

Yes, I mean those triangular end pieces. Interesting, I was almost sure these are made from some rubber-like foam. Never seen plastic made pieces, learning new all the time.

Never realized that the A-pillar covers indeed are color coded, the picture is from Bianco Spino 1962TI, white covers.

Nope - at least in my car, they are done in molded plastic. They are not flexible iirc. The texture of them - a bit snake hide texture - is rather unique as there is no other such surface anywhere in the interior. The color is a very dark gray but clearly lighter than most black surfaces. I always found it to be a peculiar piece of trim :-)

It's fascinating how many variations with unique details these cars really have had during the production. And the original "Art Deco style" of early TI's.
