Re: 1955 Montclair door handles
Virgil & Sue Klein
The front exterior door handles on ’55s are the same throughout the model line. Some ’56 Montclairs have an additional piece attached to the rear of the door handle to finish off the chrome (stainless) trim on (what I call) the “bib” molding. The ’55s have a separate small piece of stainless to finish off that trim. I also know from experience that door handles from a ’56 Phaeton (the 4 dr hardtop) will not fit a Montclair or any other ’56 for that matter.
