Re: 1940 hand grab

I believe Ford called them Passenger Assist Straps. They go on the passenger side (i.e., right side in US) and are easily swiveled to access the light switch.

I packed mine with white lithium grease 15 years ago, and it seems to have survived OK. You might also check with John Connelly at Columbia Two Speed Parts...
