I am being given this car, and someone stole the cigar lighter that was in it.
From a POs show board, the car had a "catalin" cigar lighter.
Was this a GM option?
if so, I have no idea what this lighter is supposed to look like.

Where do i find one? Attached are links to two pics, I think you will have to copy and paste to view the pics, one of the car as it sits on its flat tires, the other of the dash. I will be airing them up and hauling the car home in a couple weeks to get it operational. Drain gas, add new gas, check fuel pump diaphragm, new battery, etc.

The second pic shows the dash with the lighter socket. Is that socket a GM socket? it is stock?

I could not get either link to work. Normally, the extra knob in the lower right hole is removed and the lighter is mounted in that hole. The actual lighter is rather large and fits the hole that is exposed.
It is possible for all the knobs on the dash to match in color.

If you need a shoulder to cry on, pull off to the side of the road.

If you copy the link, which the board breaks, after imgur add a "." then spell C O M by adding the o between C and M.

If the car (or any car) didn't come with a lighter, what would the knob in that position hole be for?

Thanks,
Doug

Both links worked for me by typing ".com" after "imgur".

Great looking roadster and you can't beat the price!

I think if yon were to find a 1933 accessory catalogue you would find theres a lighter that fits into a hole owner made in the dash.

Plus there is also another for clipping onto the dash lower edge.

Both use the same Caitlin honey colour lighter.

A member here named wes has one I think
