Wanted - 959 gunsight
« on: March 24, 2016, 09:30:58 PM »
Hi all,

I have lost one of the gunsights for my 1959 CDV. :cry:  It has been loose for years and I am now regretting not having done something about it. :bang:  Now it has gone - whether it fell off or someone took it I will never know.  :shrug:

Does anyone have one spare that they could sell me?  I have a few fender top spear pieces that I would be willing to trade.

Also, can anyone give me some tips on how otherwise to source one?  Are they the same as a 1960?

Thanks in advance,
Sam

Not sure if the '59 has the indicator lights in the back of the "gunsight" but the '60 does.

And from the pictures, the '59 is a different shape to the '60.

I do have a spare '60 one if that is of any help.

Doesn't sound like it solves my problem, thanks anyway.

Ask on the US forum, a really helpful bunch. I can't imagine its that rare. I had spares when I had my 59 but let them go with the car. It it was a really impossible part to find I have had in the past many parts cast locally then chromed but I would be surprised if you couldn't get something stateside.
