Is this the one you need. If so Mac's has them listed. If you are handy they can be taken apart and the contacts cleaned. That's usually all they need. If you are referring to the limit switches they are a little bit more difficult to find.

This one is the only one that I know of that's available new although just because it's listed doesn't mean that it's in stock. If you need the smaller ones you will have to find used ones. Try Carl Heller (partsetal), Bob's Bird House, The Birds Nest or the T-Bird Sanctuary. They all have used parts.

The smaller pieces go over the edge of the quarter trim panels at the door post. Here's a picture. The larger pieces look familiar but I can't place them at the moment. I'm sure it'll come to me.

Those long strips, two curved and one straight, surround the glove box opening on late 59s and 60s. 58s and early 59s did not have the dash pad running all the way into the glove box opening like the later models did.
