Need locations for 66 reverb and power antenna switch


Carl Stevenson wrote:

If anyone has a 65 or 66 full size Pontiac with what you know to be a factory installed reverb and/or factory power antenna (switches), would you be willing to take a few pictures to show their location (side to side is what I really need) as well as some measurements? I want to drill the switch holes while I have the windshield out and the dash pad off. Much easier.

Thanks


 ill post a pic tommorow ive got my cs dash out and apart rv and pa

No indents in my dash I'm afraid, no.

Yes, anything you can find would be great.

Hmm, bit far away for me to see clearly. Do you have closer, maybe a straight on shot at the dash?

...........didn't have a chance to go look out back for the dash I thought had indents in it,  but here is a pic of my 66 with just a speaker switch,  and a few more I found with a reverb one.  I think Carl that there may not of been a exact template for hole loaction, dealer installed varied probably and from all the ones I seen so far none are the same as far as side to side.  The center of the switch looks to be dead center of the metal part of the mounting dash area, the chrome bezel with the name ( reverb, speaker etc ) is flush with the edge where  the dash pad meets the metal strip.  Now what order they should be is anyones guess, Speaker , Antenna , Reverb , R Defr , Top  ???? About 1/4" space between switches from what I could see.

 I think that may help Nailhead, thanks. I am fairly sure now the reverb goes where my speaker switch was. However, I know my speaker switch was not factory installed because it was crooked!!! However, I think the center of the hole is in the right spot, I just need die grind it a hair to make it sit straight.

Perfect, between the two of you, you've solved that for me.

Thanks very much guys.

If I stay home Saturday I think a whole bunch of this stuff will get done.

Just getting ready to drill for my power antenna switch.

Michael, I think this is a dealer installed unit. If it was factory, it would have a second smaller hole for the little alignment dowel pin that is on the bezel. As far as I've seen, all the factory installed switches there have the big hole and the small hole for each bezel that is installed. I hadn't noticed that before.

.........took a pic today of a 66 custom sport that had a speaker switch only,  again there seems to not be a definite same spot between cars.
