hopefully...but it is possible perhaps to install a switch using the flasher in the fuse box ? ELECTRIC diagram perhaps ?

 

Here are a couple of examples of the type of 4-way flasher that you could add to your car. They can be mounted under or in the dash.

GM offered accessory flashers through their dealer network for a period of time before they became standard equipment in 1967.  You can see them listed in vintage accessory brochures with pictures.  My 1966 Corvette has one that was dealer installed when the car was new.  They are usually fitted under the dash and the knob will flash red when it is activated by pulling it out.

it is a pity ;)

They are plentiful on e-bay. Many vendors will ship overseas. The first one I listed will ship to France. The second one ships overseas but, did not list France. They might if you ask. E-bay makes it very easy for a seller to ship overseas. I have sent many parts to different locations in Europe.

Hello, actually over the years ,i have fitted  about  3 hazard light switches to Buicks, and European classics,

the last was a  65 Riviera i sold about 7 years ago, the reason is  simple,--- it is a high  safety  requirement i believe,

in my opinion  , and it  is so easy to fit,   most times i fitted under the dash--just left of steering column ,

I actually  i am going to do the same on  my current Electra Convertible   ASAP.

A photo of the last i purchased ebay  while back.--- and it worked  marvelous.

i realize its not  authentic----i dont mind that.

I see no issue using one of those vintage aftermarket flashers.  They were fairly common in the day.  My '64 GP has one which appears to have been dealer-installed.

yes i will look for

thanks !!

Hello  ,  cquisuila   when you  obtain one,   dont hesitate to ask ---re fitting  very easy,

there is a few for sale now, all have the built in flasher, most have clamp stile connectors ,and 

at end of wire for connecting,-and built in fuse,--most  times  only require  4 wires to connect, black ---ground,

 red for  power , and although there is 4 wires for actual lights  only usually have to  connect   2 wires,

use a  cheap test light from the  behind the light switch, fit one first then check for front or rear, then do the last

one.--power can go from cigarette lighter  wire, or back from fuse box.--.

photo of the last one i purchased ebay US--it was a japanese one, when fitted --you only see the red flashing light

they work great   and  safe help from being rear ended.----regards.

Had one in my 65 but, what I thought was strange is four of the six wires are red. Hmm. Did not work though, the flasher relay on the end was missing.

sorry Philip, i'm hanging on to this one. I did see a few on eBay though. there are different model numbers, not sure if that matters. there is one of these (no. 127) on there for $75 and I think he ships worldwide. The challenge would be the wiring. what wire goes where.   Joey

Four wires, four corner bulbs. A 12V + from a BAT source and a ground. If it were me, I’d be extending the four wires to the bulbs. Trying to hack into that flat wire that runs under the the seats and carpet could only lead to trouble.

It was hooked up on my car, i just didn't want to leave it. It was spliced into the wires under the dash and mounted left of the steering column. It has the ends that pierce the wires and slide the rubber boot over it. Did not pay attention were the wires went because i wasn't going to use it in there.

On some 1st. gen. Rivs & full size cars the flat wiring/ribbon that goes to the rear under the seats, depending on options can have one or two of the ribbon wire not being used that can be utilized.

I purchased an NOS Roberk Model 800 flasher back in March. Had it installed yesterday. Mounted under the dash to the right of the steering column. There was one hex screw there already so mounting was easy and close to the 4 turn signal wires going to the turn signal switch. Looks nice and clean. Works like a charm.

You will be able to find aftermarket emergency light flasher here in europe as well. Bosch and Hella have them for vintage cars. Just be careful, there a special ones for US classic cars which do not have separate yellow flash lights, but using brake light as well.
