Needing a lighter element and very good original knob for a 1935 Dodge model DU.   I have a very original car and the lighter got lost over the decades.   Thanks!

If Uptonwdodge can't help I may be able to.

Do you need the element with cable or just the knob ?

Needing element and knob.  The socket is in the dash.  I'd have to take a close-up of some other knob.  Maybe this pic helps?  Thanks.

Stilloutther, not sure what knob your looking for but I got a few of this type. These are from a 36 Dodge. Let me know if I can help you out.

Not this type of knob. I believe it would look like the flatter knob on the right in the dashboard photo with the "T" on it....except with an "L".

That type of knob is used on the windshield crank handle and the door handles, I believe.

Both of Keiser's post have correct info.  Thanks uptown but that isn't it.   I'll need to take a close-up photo.

I think that the lighter knob is similar to the dash knobs but it may have a jewel in it to indicate that it's heating up. I had one made for my '36.

Two pics of other dash knobs on the '35 Dodge DU convertible.  Appreciate all y'all.

The knobs are about the same except that they don't have the letters in them. I had mine made to fit a modern element that went right into the original dash unit. The knob just screwed onto the element.I'm pretty sure that the element I had was a more modern replacement so something picked up at NAPA or similar store may work. Here are a few pics of my knob. The brown knob is the pattern that I used and stole the jewel from.That little thing cost $40 twenty years ago! The single white knob is an extra that you may be able to adapt . The ring has been rechromed but the hole drilled in the one end is off center, It could be filled and redrilled or a small stud could be epoxied into it. The one shot shows how the new knob is broken down and how the unit goes together. Hope this helps.
