I was at a car show last weekend and was looking at a 55 Chevy car (not truck)
with what was supposedly factory air conditioning. The thing that caught my
eye was that the knobs on the heater/defroster/fan/inside-outside air controls
looked exactly like those on my 57 GMC, except of course they were black
plastic like those on a Chevy TF truck would be instead of the ivory colored
plastic that is correct (and impossible to find) for the GMC.
Anyway, my question (which I should be asking the tri-5 Chevy guys) is "Does
anyone make aftermarket CHROME replacements for the Chevy knobs?" A few years
ago I saw one set of such knobs being auctioned off on a certain un-name-able
on-line auction site. I wasn't willing to pay the already over-bid price, but
after seeing similar knobs of a "stock" (how many 55 Chevy convertibles do you
think shipped with factory air??) Chevy I am wondering if that was where the
knobs actually came from.
