Can anyone identify this switch?

This 3 position switch was in the Sterling when I bought it, there are 3 cut-outs in the dash this exact size. Anyone know what these came from and were to find them?

While I couldn't find that exact switch with the headlight symbol, I found several that appeared to be close to the same size with a general Google search for "universal two position rocker switch" Sierra Rocker Switch - On/Off/On 18-Rk40170 - Rocker Switches - JMSOnline.net Marine Supply and Boating Store is only one example. I reckon that particular switch you're holding was a generic dune buggy or boat switch from the time the car was put together. Trying to find a match is going to be difficult. You may be better off either patching the dash or making a cover plate and installing new switches.

Wasn't there a Elam's switch or something like that? I think the Euro-Nova gang has talked about them a few times. I think I have a similar switch that came with my car for the wipers. Looks the same, except its an ON-OFF-ON switch.

Could have been, but I don't recall any of the UK electronics other than the rear light clusters coming over. I could be wrong... wouldn't be the first time!

Think that would be enough to handle the headlights without getting too hot?

I found a switch made by Lucas out of the UK that appears to be an exact match, but I can't find anyone in the USA that's selling them.
