1955 Buick Ant Sw

Recommended Posts

Greetings

   Salvaged this switch assy. from a 1955 Buick dash. Hoping someone here knows definitely if this is indeed a factory Buick switch and bezel from the attached photos. Ark less stamped in the metal body of switch if that helps. I ohmed the switch and it does have continuity when pushing the switch in either ditection from its spring loaded center at rest. The diecast bezel has a formed curve matching underside of dash. Thanx in advance for info.

If I remember correctly, they are different between bigger and smaller Buicks, no? 

 

And the 55 will also work on the 54.

Hello there! Name is Sean Batiz, I just came across this particular thread for the first time. I very recently was fortunate enough to snatch up an original 1955 Buick Pr Ant Sw BEZEL ONLY that appears to be NOS “but”, after receiving it in my mail a couple of days ago, it suddenly dawned on me that I’ve gone and impulsively purchased this part a bit too hastily! It’s casted part # on the top side (that’s not visible when mounted to the dash) is: “1165749”. Which, if one looks through the 1955 Buick Master Chassis Parts Book, they’d see this part number listed for specifically the 1954-55  40 - 60 series &, 1954 100 series cars! My cars are both (I own two) 1955 Buick ‘SUPER’ serious 50 2DR HDTP’s. Which lists the correct bezel part number as: “1165715”! All of this long winded message leads me up to ask: Do you know what part number is on the bezel part that you have there? Can you find a part number on that actual switch itself? Do you still have these parts? If the one that you have (presuming you still have it?) is in fact, for the larger body series (1165715), like my Super’s are, AND if you own a Century or Special series, WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO TRADE THE BEZELS? That is, unless you’ve been looking to sell your switch/bezel combination? This one that I have, appears to be flawless. I’ve included a picture of the page from my 55 BMCPB with red arrow aiming this bezel I have &, green underlining the bezel part number that would be correct. Just above that, is listed the part number into for the switch itself.
