Are those Loadstar inside door handles?

Can't tell you if for loadstar or not.  The door handle, Dorman 76992 popped up at RockAuto for R series which this truck is.  The window crank is Dorman 76996 but I can't remember how I determined that.  Anyway they looked like the originals only more shiny.  I think one is plastic but this truck is not an every day runner so should be fine.  Thanks for looking.

O-M-G.  Even the inside of that truck looks brand spanking new!  Truely excellent work.

   Now I understand the very bright yellow paint,  to draw attention to the truck.

Thanks,. Original color of the truck was apache yellow.  New paint is very close in color but shinier than original paint of the 50's.  PPG OMNI acrylic enamel.

Here's a couple shots of the interior.

Can I ask what flooring that is? And where you bought it? 
 

Your truck is so nice!! Amazingly clean!

Corey, give me a day or two and I'll look it up.  It was for the IH trucks.

Hi Corey,  I got my mat set with pad from travelallparts.com. but there are others and I think they all come from Repops in Arkansas.  Not cheap.  Best to do some pricing.  You can probably find the same thing on E Bay also.  Have fun  Dennis

Big thanks!! 
 

I didn’t know about Repops. My searching for “flooring” instead of “mats” may have been the problem. 
 

Just pulled the trigger on the flooring, door panels, kick panels, and a felt kit. My seat is at the upholstery shop. I’m stoked.

Great, what is your truck?  Restoration Specialties has all the rubber parts in case you didn't know.  Have fun.

IH often needed a grab handle inside the door so you didn't have to pull the door shut with the latch handle. 

It has a Brownie?

I had missed your question about the brownie.  No brownie.  It has a two speed rear with mechanical control linkage.  Not sure how common that was but it makes it look like a big truck with all the levers.

All right, it's a bit of a bigger brother to mine.  More HD suspension and looks in decent shape.  What part of the country are you in?  Have fun with your project.  Hoist looks useful too.

I can't think of another with a lever but maybe I just wasn't looking for them.
