    70 to 73 switches are the same. NOBODY makes them. Some used ones are on ebay. Later years WILL NOT work. Sorry.

    1970 through 72 , the switch is more rectangular with the words “ washer / wiper ”on the dash bezel itself . The 73-4 switch is more square with “washer wiper ” on the switch itself . 75 and later were shaped similar to 70-2 but different still . Wiring wise , who knows but a 73 switch will only fit in a 73-4 dash .. my 73 ..its been discussed quite a few times , did you try a search ???? CC92517B-800C-4AF9-A862-6B80464298FE.jpeg

    the 72 is iffy on this subject because i've seen them both ways ( with the majority being the early long version ) . here is a few 72s with the older style . ( you can tell its a 72 by the 8 grand tach and 130 mph speedo ) 72dash2.jpg ...and 72 dash.jpg
