I bought my ignition switch from Ron Francis Wiring. It's a true double cut key not a tractor key. Plus it has a polished finish, and you can get the keys in four differant colors, red, blue tan and black. Hope this hhelps.

bought a late 60's Ford ignition switch. I liked the period look.

'65-'66 Mustang switch and bezel. Gives it the right look for the era and it has "OFF, RUN, and START" on the bezel...

Let me know if you want pics...

I used the new ffr switch to replace the old one. However, i wish that i had thought to use a 65-66 mustang switch like Mark,
Can we see some pics Mark??

Sure thing...

Here it is being mocked up (I used the OE horn button hole and enlarged it a bit):



Here it is with the dash covered:



If you want some better shots I can take them, this is all I had in my online diary/photobucket...

Great idea. I am using one from Ron Francis now, but if the hole diameter is the same, I may switch to this set up. Thanks !

I use the '66 Mustang switch, the only problem is you have to buy everything separately, There's the housing, the tumbler set, bezel, and a cup looking thing that holds it to the dash. It's also a little tricky removing or installing the tumbler, if you haven't done it before. John

You guys are a bad influence. Working from home waiting for the next kid to be born has given me a little more free time than my wife likes. I just went out on ebay and bought: 64-66 Mustang ignition switch (new); 64-66 Mustang ignition/door matched lock set; 65-66 Mustang ignition switch bezel. Is there anything else I need? J Persons, you mention a cup looking thing that holds it to the dash? I've currently got the older FF5 ignition switch with the lawn mower key. I'm hopeing that this is a pretty easy swap out.

Thanks,
P.J.

This is everything you need here:



You should be able to easily purchase all the parts from any reputable Mustang parts dealer.

PJ, the nearest place to you is KAR Mustang in Cincinatti. Call and ask for George Waydo, tell him I sent you and that you need the ignition switch spacer (the bell/cup thing) to go with your other parts. You also said you bought a switch. Do you mean the main switch body, or the ignition tumbler and key set? You'll need that if it didn't come with your switch...

We got our parts from Virginia Classic Mustang (if you need to buy the whole shooting match)...

Even better, KAR Mustang is here in Columbus off of Cleveland Ave just mile from a buddy's house. Never new they were there (I'm a Tbird guy). The spacer is $6.95

Thanks,

Oh, that's right. I remember being in Cincinatti for something and then driving up to Columbus to see George. It's been a long time since I visited his place. I usually see him at shows/events instead...

Glad you got what you needed. Let me know if you need wiring help with the switch...

I don't have the cup either, got the other parts... what does the cup do, how does it fit? Does it go over the spring on the switch itself, and acts to hold against the back of the dash? if so, couldn't you use a large washer that'd fit over the nose of the switch but not over the spring? Also I've lost the wiring schematic so if someone could post it here it'd be appreciated...

Thanks Mark,
I'm hopeing that the I'll be able to take the wires off of the old switch and put them on the corresponding spot on the new switch. If different, please let me know.

Thanks,
P.J.

Here is a copy of the American Autowire Systems diagram. Might be difficult to read.

PJ, use the top switch diagram here to transfer your wires:



Ed, the cup goes over the front of the switch and has two recesses in it that accept the chrome bezel and locks the two together. The spring on the switch provides tension to keep it all in place. I would suggest using the proper part for all of $7...

If anyone needs directions on how to install the tumbler (or remove it) let me know...
