Default Can you match a part number to the cars it fits?

I've got an acquaintance who'* trying to sell some apparently NOS dashboard switches on eBay, for cruise control and rear defogger. The only visible part numbers he can find on the things are 1247050,1247053,1246627 and 1235651. Is there any way to determine what car(*) those would apply to?

If it'* a GM car, it'* an old one from the 87-91 vintage. That sequence of numbers is that age. And all parts are invalid on GMpartsdirect, which backs up this theory. That'* all I can tell you from that info.

[edited for my lack of knowledge]. But those numbers are from an 87-91.. mine has those everywhere.. and they are worthless in identifying anything. The cruise switches.. those are column switches, right? and rear defogger.. hmm.. it must have been a non-CC'd car

I'm not sure what you're trying to say here, but I have in front of me the GM part numbers for every Bonneville produced between 1982 and 2002. And the reason your part numbers don't do crap for you is that GM no longer supports cars of your VINTAGE on www.gmpartsdirect.com

Sorry, I had a brain fart: I should have just posted the eBay item number, which is 2493857667. There are several clear photos to show what we're talking about. If you recognize what year(*) and model(*) those will fit, I'm sure he'd like to hear from you. (Please be _sure_, though: e.g. Because you own a car with those switches, not because your girlfriend'* dentist'* son used to have something like that many years ago... )

Well, "vintage" can be used different ways: a "vintage" car has specific meaning (which I have forgotten but which I think might refer to postwar cars from 1946 through the mid-50s or something like that). But when you say "an old one of the 87-91 vintage," it'* just another way of saying "from the 87-91 model years," that'* all.

lmao! those aren't from an 87-91.. that looks late 70s early 80s.. maybe older.. a brougham'r would know if it was from their gen.

Don't worry acg_ssei, Bill and I have been having a PM convo over this.. I already edited out my comment.. we are now looking back upon it, as a laughing matter, and probably for the next few weeks, we are going to see "VINTAGE" a lot in his posts .

Actually I was thinking that that defogger switch looks an awful lot like the one I had in my old '78 Grand Prix... many years ago now...

Hmmm...those VINTAGE parts are definitely from a higher end car. I'll buy 70'* for sure. Some sort of cruiser/touring car from the style.
