    Stainless? Was that an 'early' thing? I don't recall mine being stainless but, then it's been out of the dash for some time.

    bumping up, I believe the material is indeed stainless. Not sure when first used but somewhere late '65

    There is something very odd to me with your picture. The plastic part appears to be at 90 degree angles instead of beveled. I've never seen anything like that. I'm assumming that you need one for a locking ign switch, not the switch that was in your car, originally?

    That and the interior piece seems flat (perpendicular to the lock) instead of sloping inward to the lock face like mine is.

    Jim,

    The picture is one I found on the board and is not of my switch. On mine the stainless insert is damaged. This is why I am looking for another one. This is what was in the car as I got it from you. I have no reason to doubt the originality given the history of the car and the fact that the switch code matches the Kardex.
