    They use the same outside door handles as a Ranger/Bronco II of the same era. Mine are the metal ones from a Ranger.
    The one I broke was sold as metal, I am guessing it's pop metal.

    Did you get a used original Ford handle off a ranger? Did they hold up better on the rangers than the mustang, I don't know of many mustang that still have the original door handles.

    When I did the drivers door handle on my 86 they all seemed to be the same.

    CJ Pony Parts sells black ones for cheap - the chrome is quite a bit more. As far as installation - I had a hard time getting the big rivets to be fully tight and finally went with 1/4" 20 SS button head screws (pick the head style of your choice) and nylox nuts. I forget the length - maybe 3/4"? Anyhow, that's worked great.

    I have one of the big rivet guns so that had not been a problem. That handle was only a couple years old. I think the strikers needs to be adjusted more after I replaced the door gaskets it takes more effort to open. Didn't know if all the repos are the same or one brand was sturdier.

    ​​​​​​​Drove it to work Friday for the frist time ever. Drove it to Roxboro to TNT / Gamblers race. Met Dad there we raced a few times. Entered the Gamblers race, it was only $5 more than TNT so why not it good practice. I had run a 8.89, 8.84, 8.80. I decided to dial in a 8.90. I guess I was holding to many I backed off at the end but it still broke out 8.84
    Good time once the sun went down it was not so hot.
    Broke the door handle. Who sales good ones

    I hope thats not it. I used their drier last year when put it on the purple car. The condenser is the biggest questionable part.

    Got my box of new AC parts from rockauto today and flushed the evaporator, and drained the compressor. Hope to put it all back together Wednesday.

    I vote for "old". And mine are circa 1988 so I'll wager they need replacement, too.
