door jamb sensors

Hello all,I am looking for the paper-thin copper contact part that sits inside of the original door jamb sensor(part number 4826444).  One of mine is, well, shot.  I know that we can get updated sensors and run a ground, but I am trying to stay away from that.Does anyone have one of these in good shape(all four legs off the copper contact) they are willing to sell?--jakeSee More

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.
