Knob and lock has a very dark green color. I dont think I saw any numbers under the switch. I will have a look again later.

This is NOT the right switch for a GP, but the piece that you see showing on the dash side of it is the same.

These switches are quite common, used on early Dodges too, have a couple left for sale.

GP switch is much smaller, and has fewer connections, and is impossible to find!

Hi Frank, I was wondering if you ever found a number or manufacturere for the light switches in your pictures. My switch is a Cole Hersee #7134 and this info is found on bottom of switch by the big lock nut . My switch is slitely different from yours as the three lugs on passenger side are further forward on the switch top. I'm sure I can make mine work and it will look correct from the driver compartment. Best wishes; Leo

This discussion has come up in the past and I either saved these or took them myself. I don't remember. If this is someone elses photo, I saved them to use in this...the future :o .

Sorry and credits to whoever took them.

Note the bezel is brown and not black or green.

Frank,

I didn't see your post before

I have a photo of a very late Ford GP dashboard, and the color of the Light sw, knob(lower left corner of picture) is the same dark green as your switch pictured in the first post.
