Sunvisor brackets

SuperDaveSuperDave Posts: 3,371Senior Contributor
I would like to purchase all three brackets for the outside visor on a stepdown. Anyone have a source? I noticed that there are two different part numbers for the visors. What is the difference?

    Dave, There were Hollywood/Convert brackets that are a tad different from the standard brackets .  Hollywoods were a bit longer(wider?)  Never saw any major difference if a standard bracket was  put on a convert though.

    I have the visor brackets.  How many do you need?

    Do you have the center bracket for the 54 Hornet that bolts to the roof with a place for roof mount antenna.

    Difference in brackets is smaller ones fit all 1948-1951 and 52/53/54lower price models.  Larger ones are made for 1952 Commodore and 52,53/54 Hornet.  The need for extra size is to clear the stainless on the higher priced models,

    The longer brackets were also used on the 1951 Hollywood, as it was the first to use the stainless pieces above the windshield and on the pillars like used on the senior 52-54 Comm. &Hornets.

    That's just what I was thinking. That extra stainless could make it a tight fit. Blocking more air flow and making it a tight fit for the end brackets where it attaches to the rain gutter.. I had one disaster at 70 MPH. There must be some relief for that trapped air to get out..   I did order a set of brackets from Bent Metal. My visor is a fiberglass replica. looks like the original was used as a plug for the mold. It will not have the center exterior stainless trim piece.  I wonder who made these visors and when? It was in the trunk of a junk Hudson I bought years ago. There was a center bracket that was very flimsy.. no end brackets.

    A fellow in Hillsboro TX made Fiberglass visors for Hudsons and other cars for years. Do not know if he is still in biz

    Duncan,  I have the center bracket that attaches to the center windshield divider.  On the underside, not the outside stainless trim.  As well as the brackets that attach to the drip rail.

    Got the brackets from Perry today... Superb! Highly recommended.  Now to figure out how to make center trim for the outside center that will look similar to the original one.

    Thank you 'super dave'!  :)  Glad you like it.

    Duncan, I don't have the '54 type.  I have seen pictures.  I know what you're talking about.  But I don't have those.  If I could get one for a sample, I could probably copy them and make them available.

    Bent Metal-

    I'm glad y'all brought up this thread.  I was looking at the visor on the convertible. and it is slammed tight against the trim above the windshield.  On the sedan, there is a gap.  Can you make a set of the larger brackets and do you make them from stainless?  If so, I need a set.

    That's because you have the early brackets on there.  '48-9, or so.  I have the longer brackets, in stainless.

    Hi Bent Metal:

    I have the smaller brackets and they will not clear my windshield stainless. Do you still have for sale the stainless larger brackets for the sunvisor to fit the 53 Hornet?  I would like a pair.  Please PM me at popgun7@comcast.net or provide me with you email or phone number and I can send payment.  Thanks.

    Hi I’ve got a 53 Hornet and I’m looking for a sun visor for it but I’m not sure what i need specifically. A gentlemen offered me one off his wasp but I’m pretty sure that won’t work. Any info about the sun visor would be greatly appreciated.

    Wasp and Hornet use the same visor. Bracket may need to be modified per above post

    Don't need to cut up your short brackets.  Buy the longer ones from me.  I have a set ready to ship.

    Is that a visor to a 53 with the brackets ? How much?
