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.

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.
