Thanks for the info. I did not know about being able to send them to fellow car addicts across the world, so that is where they are headed.

MikeB is right......you might find one of them on eBay, but there are repops. I've seen 60-70's ignition switches used, but they just don't look as good as the original one (my opinion).

Thank you spanky, that's great info. Do you have a picture showing how the body and the boom mast mounts to the frame. I have been searching for hours and can't find anything. I need to fit this to the truck before I start getting it ready for paint
