Does anyone have or know of a source of a few items for a late A (1959) S/R coupe? What I need are:
Dash mounted Idling adjustment (cold starting) unit
Dash mounted cigarette lighter
Beige (or paintable) ventilation knobs
Mysterious front (on body) Sunroof seal (see Charlie White's web page, detail in #314) http://www.members.aol.com/Porchrat/356-AAccessoriesLATE.html
This one seems to be in addition to the other two seals commercially available.
John, et al,
This seal has puzzled me. I've never seen a reproduction or a part number(maybe I haven't looked hard enough through all the books). I've seenremnants of this seal on several unrestored 58-59 SRCs, including mine, yetsome knowledgeable people have sworn it shouldn't be there. My experienceand the factory pictures say otherwise. The seal appears to be made ofsimilar material as the one on the back of the slide, sealing the roof(gray, pliable rubber). These two seals are the only ones I've observed onlate A sunroofs, except for a small firm piece on the front lower edge ofthe slide which seems more of a trim piece than a seal. Anyone with betterinfo? Anyone reproducing this? Note, later sunroof seals are totallydifferent.
