Has anyone seen one of these before
« on: September 29, 2015, 03:11:28 PM »
  Just picked up a 59 Fleetwood , in the past it looks like someone replaced the headliner and installed this inside visor that attaches to the rear view mirror.  I thought it was kinda cool.

I've heard of them before.  I seem to remember a 1957 brochure that mentioned it.  There was one on ebay awhile back.

I thought it was an after-market shade for non-shaded windshields.

Hi Marty,

 How about some pictures of the rest of the car? I'm a big fan of the Fleetwoods.

Have a great day.

I have an aftermarket hat rack that attaches in a similar area.  I have never mounted mine and I'm not say it might be that...just food for thought.

  I assumed it was aftermarket, I haven't seen one before , it slides back and forth, just a novelty for sure.

What an interesting contraption. Perhaps from J. C. Whitney.

I have seen one of those before.  Coincidentally on a white '59 Fleetwood.

Nice Fleetwood, congrats!

There was one on eBay a couple of years ago.  Although I think it was listed to fit a 1958.  I think its really cool.  What a neat accessory piece.

These were a regularly listed (but rare) factory option for 1958 Pontiac.
Search 58 Pontiac literature for more information.
