I had posted the question because I sold some window crank handles on ebay that I thought I had got from Danchuk. The buyer pointed out to me after receiving them that the boxes had Eckler's part numbers on them.
I got them a couple of years ago when I was looking for cranks for my 150 and I accidently got the BelAir/210 version. When I looked around more, I found that Goodmark had the correct ones cataloged, so I ordered them, and found they weren't for 150s after I got them.
When I called Goodmark to discuss the error I was informed that all of the window cranks are made in India.
So, I'm, wondering if Danchuk's, and Eckler's and everyone else's come from a manufacturer in India.
*By the way, I finally got the right ones from Goodmark, and their prices are more than reasonable. If you need them the p/n's are
4040-419-531 for the short ones
4040-421-531 for the long ones
When in danger, when in doubt.
Run in circles, scream and shout.
I was a member of Classic Chevy since 1978. Eckler's eventually bought them out and took over. The parts come from everywhere just like everyone is saying. They do make some of their parts but very little. I recently dropped my membership due to the fact; Eckler's quit doing the conventions. I liked the shows, the people, the cars and especially the judging. The awards from the 1,000 point judging did help in selling the cars. My cars are usually Custom to modified so I can't get them judged at a AACA event. All Eckler's care about is selling parts. I usually can find on E-Bay the same parts, cheaper than Eckler's.
