Simon's right, no thermostats in 62s. If your fan housing has holes for
the thermostat parts then the engine is likely not original.

They come up occasionally at the swaps, but are usually in poor
condition. A better bet might be to have someone like Koch's refinish a
later gray/white knob in solid white. That's what I plan to do since my
original shift knob is turning to dust.

Your best bet is to rely on Type 34 Registry connections. A few NOS ones
have come up in recent years but the prices can be obscene ($250+ for
the front emblem isn't unlikely).

Another 1962 343 restoration underway. Not for the faint hearted, but
worth the effort.

62 343, 65 361
