Hello Wagon owners,

Here is an obscure but important part for correctly working wagon rear windows. I'm calling this part the "rear gate crank coupler" and many end up breaking because of poor metal quality.

Considering that these parts break easily, the quantity of these parts are only going to go down future. So before these parts become impossible to find, I measure and documented the part as a 3D model.

If anyone wants to machine and reproduce this parts, feel free to use the files bellow. (These files come with no warranty)

Recently... Allen and I had to fix the broken one in his 64 Valiant wagon....
good thing we had a decent replacement in the 'bucket' but...

These things are made of cheap pot metal so it is just a matter of time before the next one breaks.
Hopefully, we can make a few out of better material and then all the 63-66 A-Body wagon owners will be covered. (ALL 4 or 5 or us )
:lol: :roll: :wink:
