Nice find. Very similar to my 1953 with the exception of the headlight. Mine is a sealed beam. Also mine is black and chrome. The switches do surface occasionally, keep your eyes open.

Thought I might tag-a-long on this old thread.

Gordon do you or anyone else have a photo of what the turn signal switch looks like?

I think I'm going to fix up the ladies '53 Hawthorne I acquired and would be needing...
- turn signal switch
- bent rack braces
- correct ladies seat w/chrome protector
- correct headlight

It would be a Delta turn signal switch that mounts on the top bar above the tank.

I have a set of curved rack braces I would sell.

VERY Interested in the braces. I sent you a PM.
