Is anyone reproducing bakelite control knobs on 39 LaSalle?

I just purchased a 1939 LaSalle Sedan and need two of the control knobs and was wondering if anyone had reproduced these.

Hello Scott, There was a guy named Dan Whalen who reproduced those but unfortunately he died recently. You can try Bruce Berghoff at   231-889-3343    or   berghoff@chartermi.net. He sells hard to find pre war cosmetic parts for Cadillacs and Lasalles. Perhaps you can make your own with "sil-putty" mold making material. https://www.vandykes.com/silputty/p/206038/.  I have used this stuff for reproducing the ornament on antique picture frames. great stuff. The same website sells Pour a Kast epoxy to pour into the mold.

On my 37 LaSalle I went to the Chevy vendors and they reproduce the exact sames knobs for Chevy and other parts.

I used the Fillikng Station out of Oregon.
