    Hello,
    Anyone out there have a factory formula S with a factory rear defroster? I'm interested as to where the switch was mounted. Pictures would be amazing. Thanks in advance!:prayer:

    I pulled one from a 65 awhile back, I might have pics of it before I yanked it but I think it mounted to the under side of the dash, possibly to the left side of the steering column

    If you have pics, that would be great. They're normally mounted where the tach resides but if you have the tach, what to do? Let me know and thanks!

    No pictures, I'm at work. Mine had a switch in the dash under the radio that simply turned on of off.

    So the way I have seen them,

    If it was non tach no a/c it was where the tach goes.
    If it was tach it could be under radio
    If it was tach a/c car it was under tach but out of way of e-brake

    I would call Wildcat Autowrecking and see if they can help you.

    The switch was the same from 64-66 same as convertible top in Valiants.

    Thank you for the info. Hopefully 66340 will be able to provide a picture. I have some ideas but I want it to look 100% factory. Thanks again!
