    Hey Guys,

    I'm in need of a turn signal switch for my 66 Lesabre. The car has cornering lights and no tilt. I can find all kinds with out the cornering lights. Any ideas of where to find this part? Thanks for the help!

    Those are very scarce, they were a one-year design.
    Yours is the 3rd of a possible 4 combinations. Your best bet would be to go and case a 66 Electra or Riviera in a wrecker, that's how I eventually found mine. The Electra I know will be the same, the Riviera should be the same, but I'm not 100% sure.

    I'm junking out a '66 Electra, can't remember if it is a non-tilt column but it has cornering lights. I will try to get to the car tomorrow and check.

    Maybe a chicken lip might be found.

    The column in the '66 Electra is a tilt. Is that switch different? If so, do you want the whole column? Column seems tight, turn signal switch seems tight and stays in place when engaged. Let me know.

    rick1966lesabre, - If I were you I'd take him up on the whole column. The switch will be different, it's the 4th of 4 styles and possibly the rarest, this would be the upper lip of a chicken, and I'd be grabbing it to make soup. It's how I ended up getting mine.

    The non-tilt switch is under the steering wheel, while the tilt switch is mounted under the dash, low on the column. They're the same 65/66, but I don't know about the non-tilt. If it were mine, and the tilt column above is good, I sure would change it out. It's very easy, and a tilt wheel is a great addition, especially for us "larger" folks!

    I don't have a switch. Lots of other 65 full-size parts, but no t/s switches.
