Hello,

Does anyone know the location for the dome light switch and how it was wired originally? Thank you.

Philippe,

I'm not certain, but I would almost bet that a dome light in a 1939 would have been an aftermarket addition. If it was from the factory, I would think that it would not have a door switch, but rather turned on by a switch on the light itself.

Hello Randy,

Well, it so happens you're absolutely correct! the light must be an aftermarket addition since it has a switch on the light itself, rather than a door switch... I overlooked that detail... Light is marked Arrow 36...

That looks very similar to the original dome light in my '40

Does your light have a separate switch?
