These look to be orignal. But I don't see how they would ever been mounted to the door panel. Surely something held them in place besides the 1/4turn screw
Does anyone have a pic of backside that they know for fact are orignal.
Also are these aluminum or zink?
Thank you

Ok after some searching. Im.gonna say mine are not repo. As looking at the ones from gph..
I see some difference between the two parts. First that stands out is the nubs between the words before/glass. And full/delivery. Where as the repo parts don't have that.
Second thing I see is very small space between glass and must on mine compared to the repo
But why is there no mounting holes on mine

Yours are original. Just no hole drilled out for mounting.

I took a picture of my originals vs my Vics66 ones for you. Several differences…. Mounting holes vs studs, 3 dots at the top of the casting on the back,etc.

Hope this clears it up,
Steve

Yes, I believe yours to definitely be NOS, prior to drilling. Part number is on there and cast is correct.
