I found this older 911 switch and thought it might work?

Yes - but I don't think you want to put an early sub dash frame in a later car unless you really want to re-work all the parts of the dash for the GT look.

Mark:
Now that my brain is in gear it is self evident
One reason I asked is I happen to have a 70 4 cylinder dash that is not in my build plan so was trying to decide if this makes it worth something

They're still plenty of 'core' dashes in the world. I used to have about 10 that I planned on converting, but they got sacrificed in the move. I may start collecting cores to have in stock.

Dash escutcheon picture. Apparently AutoAtlanta already makes a typically crappy reproduction.

Are going to do the full conversion with the steering wheel lock and early TS & Wiper switches ?

It has a Porsche key in it. I'll use that. This ignition switch also has an accessory mode which comes in handy.

It fits into a plain round hole, too. No wheel lock.

Mark has all those parts. I'm trying to dig up enough dirt on him so I can blackmail him into selling them to me...

Quick question, how were you able to locate this "crappy " repro one at AA? I searched just to see and could not located a picture of that crappy one...it looks just like my OEM.

Here's the image I was looking at. The surface finish and the 'fuzzy' edges bother me. I would have to spend a couple hours making this better before I would feel comfortable using it.

Curious Mark... what if we do not want the expense and hasstle of the 914-6 steering column. Do you have any recommendations for just the 911 ignition switch with 914-4 switches and column? Maybe cut the arm off of a 911 ignition switch?

Good question; curious

Thanks for posting the "mickey " part from AA. I did see that part and thought the same when I saw it.
My apologies as I was mistaken about the part in question.

Mark, there is a washer that goes on before the shear screws go in. I'll try to get a photo later. It sandwiches the dash tin between the switch and the washer.
I made one for a guy once. I used a electrical box cover for the material, a knockout punch and a pattern off an original part.

Yup. It was just for mockup. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) Just looked, is that plate not available anymore? Is the 914-6 one different than the 911? If I can get one, I can have them laser cut en masse.
