Without the clip extraction tool, all the handles should be a bugger to get off because of the clip.
I double checked and I have all the hardware. The end of the handle has at least a half inch play. Before checking the end play, I was able to push it inward about a quarter inch toward the panel. There's that kind of movement.
If it is what it is, okay, but even for a 58 year old car this seems hokey.
