Default 64 owners survey - Raised Pad under door handle

Looking for information from all owners of 64 coupes and convertibles regarding the presence of the "raised pad" under the door handle.

If you have the original door skins on your 64 and are willing to provide your VIN in a 123XX (approximate) format, please post or email me to let me know if your car has the raised pad or not.

Nolan Adams book states the change from with to without the pad occured around VIN 15000.

This is just a sanity check.

thanks,
tc

Great..keep'em coming !!

Also interested if the coupe and convertible changed at the same time.

Obviously, the door skin tooling is different.

My fathers 64 has them and it was built in oct 63. I should say it did have them-a compressor came loose off a trailer and barrelled down a hill into the drivers door. Looking for a replacement currently.
