Hi. So I just bought an 84 bronco II xlt. It’s a surprise for my husband. I’m needing a few parts but the thing I need the most is the back lift gate handle. It’s completely missing so I have no idea what it is actually supposed to look like. I’ve joined around 5 different fb groups and have exhausted every internet search. I’ve tried LMC truck, bronco graveyard, eBay, all local places,
Fb, everything that I can think of. And have not been able to find the EXACT thing that I need. Everyone keeps showing me options that fit the later models. My back door has just one single hole, which leads me to believe that the handle and lock is one solid piece. The newer models seem to have a separate hole for the lock with the handle screwed in separately above. But there is no other holes where screws might have been and I believe there hasn’t been any work done on it. Please help! It won’t let me upload a photo.

Yes, there is a handle with an integral lock. No, I don't know where you could find one. Junkyard? Check in the classifieds and put an ad in the wanted section;
You could also check the sister site;

Honestly, it might be easier to just swap the whole back hatch. Try www.car-part.com it's a site where junk yards all across the country list their inventory, might be of some help. Good luck!
