I'm assuming that's for a brand new (NOS) switch. That's pretty expensive but when you're looking for unique parts for a 50 year old car, you sort of have to be glad that the part is available at any price.

That sounds like a price you'd pay for the part from Olds Obsolete. https://www.oldsobsolete.com/about-us/ They sell NOS parts but ask a king's ransom for them.

If you wanted to try a used one, check with John Dorcey.

John Dorcey has 50 Toronados from 1966-1970 for parts or complete cars. He is in Las Vegas.

Here's one on ebay for $345.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-Delco-Remy ... 0005.m1851

Is this the one you're considering? It's the only one I've found for sale so far.

Those pictures look like Steele products. They're good quality and generally correct from my experience with their '56 Cadillac parts.

Do a search on this forum for the shackle and spring bushings replacement. Others here have gone through this already. Some listed by various sellers are not the correct size, I forget what the solution is.

Here is a link to The Olds Master Parts book. It's useful for getting actual GM part numbers.

That vinyl flooring is funny.

You can buy masticated rubber from this company and make a proper splash shield. Fortunately, mine is in good shape.
