Stop and reverce switch 1929

Recommended Posts

Yes but its not period make and model correct for the concourse or AACA Senior,  A Good Buick Judge knows exactly what to look for, but I guess if he is not going for the Oem Original restore throw disk brakes on it and A/C while your at it.

LOL

Cheers Good Luck!

No concourse judge will ever pull the floorboards to see it.  

 

Asking $195 on eBay for an OEM part that will never be seen is not justified when you can get a new modern switch for $13.50.

 

I'll bet most concourse car engines have aluminum pistons with modern rings too.  If it will never be seen, why spend ridiculous money?

These modern switches don't enable the back-up lights to operate as the original does.

IMO,  safety trumps judging points.  If I am correct, seat belts and starters on older cars are not deducted.  Correct me if I am wrong.

I just took it apart and repaired it, it turned out to be a faulty wire in taillight.

Thanks for all replies.

Sorry Stuart...  1929 was the first time Buick had a clear lens in the combination brake/tail/backup light.  This combination light in a 1929 Buick has a dual filament bulb that operates the low watt filament as a tail light when the headlights & cowl lights are on.  The high watt filament works as both a brake light, and a backup light when in reverse.  So  yes, the switch connected to the transmission does make the "backup" light work in reverse and the brake pedal makes it work when stopping.
