Before I go posting a want ad, were they all black or did some come in chrome? It's the little, cast metal ring that screws onto the lighter socket to retain the dash bezel.

I have a 66-67 Cutlass dash that I may be able to rob one off of, but haven't checked to see if it's the same, yet.

I've found that the Chevy's....Malibu, Monte & Camino were all chrome. They were pretty thin...seems to me Pontiac had a thicker one?

I've got a few chrome ones here, I'll dig some out and send some pics if you want. See if it's what you're looking for.

I will look to see what the Bonneville has.

If it's chrome you can have it.

O.D, I got your message, and unfortunately, that's not what I'm referring to.
Sorry for the delay; that life thing intervened again. Anywho, this is what I am looking for

It sandwiches the dash plastic.

I have never seen that style, my chrome one looks similar to this with an inner and outer shell.

This is the only style I know of too. The bezel, which is the insert with the electrical connections, can be sourced as a replacement for 1970-1981 Camaros. I got mine from OER.

Maybe post a picture of your dash/radio bezel? Almost looks like an aftermarket cigarette lighter.
