My bid has the glove box light. There is a premade hole about 1" in diameter on the left side. Weird design. When the car gets back, I can take a pic and send it to Ray if needed to show the stock application. I may have a pic come to think of it. HOLD ON RAY!!!! You may have another pic from me, just what you always wanted !!!!!!

On looking through my parts catalogs I found the following:
1. 1958-59 Passenger Car Body Parts, Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited, PA-762-59, Revised Sept. 1959
06010 Compartment Assembly - Glove: 58/59 113" B8S-6306010-A

2. 1949-1959 Ford Car Parts and Accessories Text Catalog..., Ford Motor Company - Dearborn, Michigan, Form FD 9462, 1964
06010 - Compartment Assy.- Glove: 58/S C0SB-6306010-A

Could this mean that sometime during the 1960 model year a different version of the glove box liner became available? I notice that the item listed in Mac's catalog carries the earlier number and does not have the "peep" hole in it.

I am trying to understand the logic of the wiring for the glove box light before I get into the nitty gritty. The wiring diagram appears to show two sources of power - the dome light switch circuit on the headlight switch and the door switch activated circuit for the dome light. But this doesn't seem right since the door light switches are always powered - so why the need for the spade connector to the dome light switch? The wiring harness has connectors for two power sources - a spade connector that presumably attaches to a prong on the headlight switch, so it will be activated by the dome light switch, and a bullet connector - that apparently connects to the door switches circuit again for the dome light. The spade connector lead had a female/male bullet connector so that the spade connector can be disconnected and removed. I haven't got to looking at the actual wiring in the car - could it be that Ford provided the spade connector to the headlight switch in case there is not an available female bullet connector on the door light switch circuit? For those of you that have a working glove box light, under what conditions does it come on? Whenever the glove box is open? Only if the dome light is on?

Mine , I believe , comes on when the glove box is open only. Would have to check when I get my car back in about 2-3 weeks

I think the situation just got considerably simpler. I finally realized there is a switch beside the map light (in place of a dome light because it is a convertible) that can be used to turn the light on anytime or have it light only when one or both doors are open. So I should be able to tap into the side that has power all the time and connect the glove box light lead to it. The result is that the glove box light will come on anytime the glove box door is open - which is fine by me.

Default Glove Box Light

Hey, Cathie! You lucky Gal! I wish Rose had one, but she does not. I am looking for one to put in her, but have not found one yet. I did get the trunk light and assembly though! I need to find out if my ashtray light is there, but I think it was ripped out by the previous owner when he ran his big cable through that area to the trunk and his big amplifier he had in the spare tire well.
