    DELCO CONTROL PANEL with KEY...automotive and how old?

    Here is an instrument control panel with DELCO and a 'B' and 'M' on face.

    Is this for an automobile, boat...airplane????

    faceplate is about 8 x 2 inches. overall has a heavy feel. end of key looks like a small gear.

    (have a similar smaller one with 'DELCO' named and 'HEAD AUX REAR IGN' each over one knob on face)

    as always, answers are much appreciated.

    On back side you may find a stamped number, I think this is a 1048. If so it is 1915 Buick, Cole, Oakland, Oldsmobile, Wescott.
    Post pictures of the other one!

    ......."on back side you may find a stamped number, I think this is a 1048..."

    Yes Sir, I did see that number '1048'.

    The other one is pictured here as requested and it is a bit more incomplete than the first.

    faceplate 6 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches and there is an impression on the right that a 2 1/4 inch diameter fixture was once affixed there

    On this second one there is an '1104' with a smaller '3 14 18' under it.

    Your detailed answer on the first was most excellent. thanks

    The lower one would fit a '16 Buick and others. I would be very interested in the top one for my '15 Buick, I have the lower one fitted while I have been looking for the correct one (30years !!)

    Delco 1104:
    1917-18 Auburn
    1918-19 Oldsmobile 45-A
    1919 Patterson
    1917-19 Sayers
    I believe it will interchange into the 1916 Buick and other cars.

    Sandtrooper was kind enough to let me know he had listed the top switch panel was on e-Bay and ... wahooooo, I am the new owner !! Just goes to show, we should never stop looking for missing items.

    Nice to hear about somebody finding a part that's eluded them for 30 years.
