Q: Convertible Top Switch for 1968
Was the original switch all black or was the switch chrome. I’ve seen both types.
A: Mines original and chrome as I have had the car since it was new.
A: While your working on it, did the factory do a real sloppy job cutting out the hole for it on yours?
A: Yes, mine is sort of sloppy. Is their suppose to be a bezel of some sort on the outside? Mine does not have one and the looking at the diagram I do not see one.
A: No bezel, just looks like the one above.
A: I’ve burned through 4-5 switches through the years. I used to put the top up and down a lot when it was a daily driver. There are threads here where owners have put relays in the circuit to dampen the high current that burns the switch points.
A: I’ve only seen the black switch being reproduced. Is there a source for the chrome switch? I’ve seen a few Nos on ebay . I currently have a black switch.
A: Performance Years part number RFI242
A: Mine is black (early 68) and it is original. I have also had mine since it was new and know I have never replaced switch. Purchased new January 1968. Never a problem with the top motor or switch.
