    Looking for a couple of parts

    Looking for a couple of parts for my 66 Handi-bus & thought I would c if any one on the board might have some.

    First I am looking for a set of Custom emblems from a Handi-bus. Would like to find a pair of clean ones but if they r good enough to re-chrome that would work as well.

    2nd I am looking for a steering column rubber seal in NOS or VGC (pretty sure these r the same for 1st & 2nd gens).

    Lastly I was wondering if anyone has a part number or source for 1st gen backup light bases. I might b able to get mine re-chromed but if a replacement is available I would like 2 know.

    Any info is most appreciated.

    Thanks

    Looking for a couple of parts

    Scott I looked for an hour - I do not find the housing listed in 1967-1971 dated parts books. Only the lens. They list the 2nd Gen housing and other vehicles but not 1966 G10.

    Gary, thanks 4 taking the time to look for the housing, I had about the same result as u.
    I may decide to go a different route as I don't really like the way the original light sticks out so far.
    Gonna c if one from a 66 C10, which r smaller & flatter, would work on the van.
    Not sure due to the curve in the van body, as the C10 is flat where it mounts. Gonna look into further when I have the time.

    If u have a column seal in good shape, pls post a pic whenever u have the time.
    Absolutely no rush on my end.

    Thanks again.

    Is this what you are looking for?

    Also, might this be the part numbers for the rubber/plastic bases?
