    Question...

    Did the 1966 G10 come with emergency lights? I can't find the switch anywhere. I would have thought they'd be a requirement by then.

    My old 66 sphrtvan custom did not have them. I believe the 1966 4 way flashers were a dealer installed option that plugged into the turn signal harness and the switch installed under the dash with a cool looking translucent red knob that pulled out to actuate the 4 ways. I recall reading the 4 way flasher kit for our van was the same dealer installed kit for the 66 corvette also.

    I'm guessing the cool looking translucent red knob is made from unobtainium.

    So far, at these prices, they might as well be made of unobtanium. With the cheaper option at $130 for a switch and a flasher module, I think I'll just put something together.

    signal stat flarestat 105

    Hy Zack,

    For starters check eBay search on "signal stat" or "flarestat 105" or some combination. I have seen a couple of non van specific units get listed in the last 1/2 year. I have some Signal Stat "generic wiring" infor if you go the build route. Send me you email address if you want it.

    Just a note, if anyone does not have hazard flashers installed, but find themselves broken own at the side of the road, turn on the turn signal that is on the road side of the van (Left signal for right side of the road, right signal if on the left side of the road) This will at least get the attention of traffic as it appears you may be trying to re-enter the roadway. My first car had broken hazard signals (67 Biscayne) and my Grandfather told me that was what they did before 4 way flashers.
