Does anyone have the switches for electric windows for a 55 Fireflite 2 dr ht?
Believe it would be one "four switch" and three single switches.
Could use the motors/hardware as well.
Thank you!

I've seen these on eBay from time to time. But because the '55 is a 6 volt system, they may not be the same as the '56 models. I'm not sure the voltage makes a difference with just the switches and if not, the '56 should probably work. The other Chrysler products might use the same switches too so don't rule out Chrysler, or even Dodge, or Plymouth.

You could also google '55 DeSoto window switches and see what all comes up. There may be quite a few sources.

Good luck with your search.

Thank you, Fred! We're always scouring the web, just hoped a club member might have them readily available.

With my best reading of the Master Parts Book, all 55/56 Dodge, DeSoto, Plymouth and Chrysler cars used the same switch and bezel. It looks like Imperial was different.

Because of the voltage difference, I would expect the lift motors to be different between 55 and 56

Thanks for the great info, Tim!
That will open up more options hopefully.
