But it wouldn't work at all without cutting a big hole. The switch panel that Bill has for sale is recessed requiring a 3ish inch by 5ish inch cut-out to sit down into. The switch panel that came with Bill's rig stood on top of the inner ender well.

I don't blame Bill for wanting to hold out for the correct switch panel. I would do the same.

I have no intention of using any thing from the ambulance switch panel except the two. Switches nessary. That way you would have original stuff. On a new plate. Much better then a hole while your waiting for the correct plate you may never come across to pop up.

I have not seen the original switch plate but this looks as if it would fit.

It should be the exact same switch panel as the one in Martin Harvey's '67 Superior Pontiac. I am pretty sure that we have seen photos of it, but I'm not going to take the time to search for it.

Here is how it should look:




Previous image is when the car was bought by JM with the attendant seat, here is the setup with the switch lights, with a squad bench it's the only way I found to fix both plates correctly.




Give me 2 days and I will be off to dig in the boxes in my garage.

Thanks a lot Martin. I must admit, it looks different than I had imagined.

Mine had the "cot light" option added since JM did a wonderful job finding an original ceiling light

Just the. Standard dash switch box. It's no wonder it's missing. They either warped or dried out and split.

What is the added box for. I'm guessing back board.

Yep it's for a backboard, actually the squad bench came from a 1966 Superior/cadillac and the long "box" goes all along
