Power convertible top switch # 3906118

On March 22nd 1977 I visited Talty Chevrolet in Morris, Illinois. I purchased a new convertible top switch for one of my Corvairs. Cost was $1.58 plus 8 cents tax. Never used it so it is still in the box with the receipt (and you thought I had a super-human memory?) Today I was looking up the part # to remember what the switch was for. Clark's has a list price of $66 for a re-pop. eBay had an NOS one listed for $139 and one other website was willing to sell you one for $149 plus shipping.

The interesting thing is this part also works on a first gen Carmaro or Chevelle convertible as well as the power tailgate on a '67-68 GM station wagon. No wonder why the value escalated. Aren't you glad we just play with Corvairs?

No, no, there is inflation, so I will offer $6.76, as that is what one online calculator says $1.66 is worth now.grinning smiley
