Where does the ignition switch go?

PostPost by: JGeezer » Thu May 15, 2014 10:09 pm

OK,. really silly question, but I'm assembling a '69 Federal +2 with the "mid" fascia (four small gauges, rocker switches), that I got as a pile of parts. I can't see where the key switch goes, and I haven't been able to find a picture anywhere to help (every one I find seems to be early or late).

Could some kind "mid" +2 owner send a pic of the ignition switch, and what if anything is needed to mount it?

Thanks!

I guess I left out some minor bits of info, such as a USA LHD car. Here's a pic I found (eBay car) of a "late" fascia (rocker, six small gauges) and the key appears to be to the right of the steering column, but I believe that's after they added the steering column interlock/buzzer thing:

I have this one - and the key switches were in boxes, not in the car:

D'OH!! I just spotted a hole to the left of the speedo:

And yup, the new dash has that hole, don't know how I missed it.

So left side key it is, I guess my brain didn't register it might be on the "wrong" side.

Thanks for the patience! Here's a pic of work-in-progress:
