Looking for a deluxe heater control assy. Good but not perfect chrome necessary. To be used in vintage air conversion. Levers will be replaced so that's not an issue if they are damaged.

HAVE PURCHASED A NICE UNIT FROM A TRIFIVE MEMBER. THANKS

55's and 56's are slightly different. Do you have a preference. I should have one, especially if you are willing to replace the levers. I would need to check the face to make sure of condition.

Thanks for the quick replies.

Hotrodder: It's going in a '55 but I think the Vintage Air modifies either. I'd like one with levers even if broken so I have all the hardware. I'd appreciate you seeing what you have.

Maddogs1965: Thanks but I need the whole assembly.

Bam bam: I don't want to be too picky but if it's not too much work I'd appreciate you checking.

Thanks

The differences that I remember are the wiring for the heater switch and the way the cables attach. The 55's use a feed threw straight end cable that attaches with a screw and the 56's use a loop that goes around a stud on the lever.

I am not sure what kind of cable end the Vintage air would prefer. Probably will accommodate both.

I know the kit is the same for 55-56 and that there are parts included for 55 and 56 so either one would likely be okay. Therefore the best looking face would be best. The lens gets replaced so that's not important.

Thanks for your knowledge.

My Gen IV was all fly bye wire, and the plastic ends for the new electronic controls hooked onto the stud that was at the end of the 55 lever controls....
