As title says looking for a set of sun visors (preferably black or white), really only need the metal arms, have the visors themselves and barring that I need just the metal arm for the drivers side visor, do have one for the passenger side albeit in ok condition. A whole new set of black visors is preferred. They can be originals or repros. Doesn't matter.

Also need a bumper jack, car never had a jack from when I bought it. Need the jack and all its accessories, including the tire iron (car has original 14" steel wheels). Again, doesn't need to be original, can be a repro or aftermarket, just need a functional jack for the car in case of a flat tire.

And yes, I am new here. So hello to you all. Please feel free to PM me.

Thanks.

Original jacks are hard to come by, and the original style must have the proper hook to mate to your specific bumper or it won't work.
If you are just looking for something that's functional, get a jack out of a newer mini-van or other larger car or truck application. Those jacks work much better and are smaller than the originals. Besides that, you are unlikely to pry any original jack out of anyone's hands for very cheap, and even if you do, it would be unwise to actually use it because they can destroy your bumper pretty easily.

Got the bumper jack, still need the visors if anyone has them to sell or knows where I could find them.

Those don't look like Dodge visors. What did they come out of? Looks like maybe a Plymouth. The Chrysler & DeSoto are similar, but they have ribs on them and the dimensions are a little different (Of course!).

I removed them from a '57 Dodge 4-door myself, pretty sure they were original. I've had others the same, too.

They look very much like the visors in my 56 Dodge. Not sure of the dimensions but very similar in looks. On a side note, the bases (with the three mounting screw holes are pot metal and after the paint is stripped or sanded off, they can be polished up to look very much like chrome. (BTDT - not finished though)

The missing parts on the bottom one are the hardboard inner portion and cardboard outer portion. Bottom could be made by using the better one as a template (after opening it up).

I sewed one of mine back together by hand (not fun but it was doable - used a curved sail maker's needle).

The sedans must be different than the hardtop then. I didn't know that.
