Cannot help because we don't know what column you have. Give us a little more to work with and we might be able to reply.

If you have an AutoZone in your area, try them. They are very good at finding NOS for older cars. They might also have a source you have not investigated.

If you are having such a hard time finding the part, you could resort to replacing the column with another. They are not that expensive and you could get into a column that you CAN get parts for. Another option is the old arm signal or do what most daily drivers do, FORGET IT and just turn when you feel like it! In the meantime, I'll ask around to see if I can turn something up.

Turn signal

Doc here,

Do a Goggle Search for hemmings, Or OPG (original Parts Group) and see If they carry the unit.

The local bone yards are another good source, (I assume you already tried this approach) Have them put it on their parts hotline on the computer and it will put out a query nation wide. It may cost a bit more, but you'll end up with one.

EBAY is another good source, just type in under EBAY motors, 1966 Buick Parts, or just 1966 Buick.EBAY would do a better business if they had a "Wanted" section...in addition to "For Sale" sections.

There are lots of Buick clubs out there on the INTERNET also, try a Goggle search for those too..some one must have the part.

Doc
