Recommended Posts

I am going to add turn signals to my 1925 enclosed Kissel Speedster and need the column switch. I have seen others who have added a bolt on lever switch assembly, but don't know the name or where to find it.  Can anyone point me to one?  Thx in advance,  Doug

There are several suppliers of modern switches like Bobs Automobilia. They are chrome and I dont like that.

I have used vintage AutoLamp 9000 switches bought on E Bay. They are painted and can have a self cancel feaature, which is nice. I paint them to match the color of the steering column.

The aftermarket ones i see the most are old/ refurbished Yankee 960, (along with other Yankee branded ones) turn signals, though some of them i would consider art deco in style and might not look right on a mid 1920s car, but i have seen simpler ones. https://www.google.com/search?q=yankee+turn+signal&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwip3sfOhuXwAhWsneAKHVDVDWoQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=yankee+turn+signal&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQDDICCAAyBAgAEBg6BggAEAcQHlCi7yBYsPggYNS4IWgAcAB4AIABT4gB0QKSAQE2mAEAoAEBqgELZ3dzLXdpei1pbWfAAQE&sclient=img&ei=yQqtYOnVAay7ggfQqrfQBg&bih=820&biw=1206&rlz=1C1CAFB_enUS951US952

 

Some hot rod centric websites also have them in various styles as well, though they can look a little cheesey

And YNZ wiring has some simple looking ones that might not look too out of place

Thanks everyone for taking the time to help me out!  I looked at each offering and went with the YnZ with black housing.  Really good to know of these suppliers.  I have created a file to be able to check them out for other items in the future. /Doug
