Power window switches

Hi all, just joined the US forum to see if you can help with replacement power window switch information. I'm restoring an Australian Falcon circa 1975 and it uses US power window switches part no. D5AB-14540-BA (multi door and an equivalent single door switch, dont have its part no.). I've just looked at "The Switch Doctor" website in US and he is selling new switches that LOOK the same as mine but I cant tell for sure, he just lists US vehicle usages.
So some questions if I may:
1. can anybody tell me what US models used these window switches?
2. is there an alternate that plugs straight in and is available?
3. has anybody used "The Switch Doctor" switches? are they any good?
thanks

About the only thing I could find was this:D5AB-14540-AB | RearCounter.com | 1 found at 1 seller, but that ends with AB, not BA

Re: Power window switches

thanks Catskinner, I googled the Rear Counter earlier and found that "AB" switch and asked them about interchangeability etc with no response to the question, only "$475 + postage" for the AB switch! hence my question to you guys to see if there is an interchangeable unit used on US product - I'm sure there is just need to find the link! cheers

Re: Power window switches

Ow, didn't know they were that expensive in my last post. As I had stated in a previous post, the critical part of the switch are it's physical dimensions. Technically, andy spring return 3 pole switch can be used for the windows, if one with exact dimensions can't be found, you may have to modify the base of another switch.

Have you tried these guys? Classic cars & parts for sale NSW classified adverts They might not have what you need, but they might be able to point you in the right direction.
