I have a 1960 ford thunderbird hard top. There is a oneway switch on the driver piler that only moves one way. Can you please help out to figure out what this switch is used for.

Is it a vacuum switch or an electric switch? -Jim

Ok, I'll do some digging and see if I can find out. In the meantime check out Faxon Auto Literature in Riverside, CA. They have a website and are an excellent source for owner's manuals and factory shop manuals for antique and classic cars. Reasonable prices and good quality too. I've bought from them many times.
