    Can anyone tell us the order of the knobs on the dash of a 62 Ranchero. Most of the functions on ours were missing. Here is what we know that from the left side facing the dash . There are a total of 8 holes

    1) ignition
    2) lights
    3) wipers???
    4) choke???
    5, 6, 7) heater controls
    8) cig lighter???

    We managed to score a wiper switch from a local salvage yard to run the vacuum wipers. I think we have all the heater switches/knobs/cables. We have new ignition switch and bezel and new light switch with old bezel and knob.

    Does anyone has a diagram or can share this info from their 62 Ranchero or Falcon. Thanks

    6) pull for temp
    7) pull for heater

    Perfect beerbelly! Looks like my guesses were right. Now I just need to find all the parts. Speaking of parts, does anyone know if anyone sells reproduction pieces for the dial select buttons on the radio? Our are decayed beyond repair. We have the knobs but need the push buttons.

    I seriously doubt you'll find replacement radio push buttons; you may have to buy a radio (working on not) that has good buttons and transfer them over.
