From the Moss Motors site - 3 options: Wiring, aftermarket switch or Lucas brand switch

Unless you need the key & Cylinder, get the first option # 263-691

Thanks

My Factory V8 is car number 2720

Must have been towards the end of production

Many of the parts that are on the car do not match up with what should be there

I have owned the car for quite a few years.

Seems that what was left over from other models got thrown in

18G8905 is the switch that matched up

Thanks for the input

Bob

Definitely the first option when you don't need a key
