First proto type Stainless Steel 68-69 Turn Signal Lever
Posted by: rlp11 ()

Will I have learned a lot making this proto type lever. Do not heat, flatten then bend. It will break. So bend, heat and hammer flat. This one is short due to the end breaking off.

This one is for the 1968-69 Corvair. Still waiting on the 1961-66 knobs. I still need a picture of the 1967 lever knob.

What do you think?

Joel that looks like a 1968 knob. Were the same knob used for 1967 and 1968?

The knob on the 67 is a one year only knob. The 68 and 69 are smooth and do not have flutes on them. If you look up the stalk/lever for a 68 and 69 Camaro, Chevelle or Nova you will see the difference.

Roger Roger Roger !
When are you going to learn "Marketing"???
That is not a prototype, it is your first production model of the "Short Stalk Lever" for those who are using a smaller diameter steering wheel ! ! !

I don't have any 68 or 69s. My collection is deficient. I am supposed to pick up a 68 500 next weekend. I'll get you a picture.

I can show you my 1969 Monza convertible with 26K miles if you want to verify an original car.

That's funny but actually makes sense. It looks great to me Roger.

Stopped by Rodger's today - his prototype 1969 lever exactly matches the lever in my 69 Monza convertible.

Had a good visit! Thanks Rodger.

Roger, you are an artist in stainless steel. A true Master of the Automotive arts. Now that your head is twice it's normal size, nice work. Looking forward to the 66 version.
