    This would have been one hell of an impressive Buick when new.

    I see the headlight dimmer switch in a factory location. Is the second floor switch near the pedal an add on?

    I was also wondering about that, there isn't a hole in the rubber mat for that second switch.

    Maybe it has to do with this:

    With the electric aerial on this car, it's the D4 option in the 1964 options list:

    1972Mach1 Just some guy.....

    My Riviera has the second switch. I had no idea what it was for, just thought a previous owner added one for some reason because its never done anything and had no wires going to it when I pulled up the carpet.....my 70 Cadillac has the wonderbar in it but no foot switch. Must be an early 60s gm thing that they got rid of later.

    I believe the foot switch on the wonderbar has been around since 1953

    I have just finished reading about the Wonder Bar radio in the book "Chevrolets of the 1950's".
    They were released in 1947, GM started using them in 1953 [​IMG]
