Seem to be as rare as hens teeth….mine are flimsy, weak and need to be replaced. Can I use handles from other 2 door as well as 4 door handles from A body vehicles? What about linkage? It has to be stressed also.

I don’t like chinese stuff, but GM quit making them years ago and started selling the chinesium stuff themselves (I paid $50 each for ‘GM’ parts ten years ago, got chinesiums in the box from a trusted dealer). So, buy these from Rock Auto or your local parts store. They’ll look great for a while, then they’ll pit and dull, so you’ll swap then again. At least they’re inexpensive. (They do interchange with almost all GM cars from the ‘70s, but good ones are hard to find because they are potmetal. All the repros out there are the same chinesiums, just priced higher.)

Your linkage is probably fine-it’s real hard stuff. The guides, sliders and such may need attention.
