Default 1970 caddy commercial chassis door jamb switch

I've tried every combination of words possible and can't come up with a picture for the door switches in our superior ambulance. Is it a Cadillac part? Or did superior remove the Cadillac part and put these in? These are in all of the doors including the rear door. Driver side door has 2 of them.

That switch was made by Cuttler Hammer. It is marked on the switch CH, which many people think is the mark for Cole Hersee. At one time, I also thought that, but after speaking to Tom Caserta, who worked for Miller Meteor, did I learn this fact. The switch is common to most of the body builder cars. Prior to talking to Tom, I went to Cole Hersee in Boston, and they said that it wasn't one of their products.

Actually spelled "Cutler-Hammer", if you are searching on-line. Huge name in electronics. My employer repairs a ton of C-H electronics. Touch screens, etc.

Thanks the word i had was they were no longer around. Glad to see they are still made. Now remember superior built the body on that car. Not cadillac. Superior used some off the shelf GM parts but like these inline switches they function differently the the Automotive jam switch. So now i wounder if the spacers are still around. I would guess so
