Power window control switches 41-42 Packard 180

Post by John1941 » Sun Apr 25, 2021 3:53 pm

Does anyone know where I can find some power window switches for my 41-42 Packard 180 Touring Sedan. I only need a few switches as the plastic levers have deteriorated and are not functional.

Have you already tried the usual major Packard suppliers without success?

If this is the type switch you are looking for I will be surprised if you find complete switches very easily. They do not even appear on ebay very often -- but miracles can happen. David Moe at Seattle Packard has been able to come up with a few prewar switches and deals in some hard to find items like that so maybe worth contacting. Flackmaster might also be able to work his magic.

If the levers can be removed from the switches without too much difficulty I wonder if it is something Lavine Restorations might be interested in looking into. Doubt if there is enough demand for a commercial project but maybe worth contacting them -- or they might even do special orders. After buying the plastic repro business from Yesterday's Radio their store has slowly been adding back Yesterday's previously available items and I notice they are offering a few new repros too. https://classiccarreproductions.com/store/
