317campbell, there was no outside sun visor for the '59 Oldsmobile, but there is a rare after-market sun visor for the '59 General Motors cars. This was a heavily tinted plastic panel that mounted on the inside of the car's windshield -- behind the rear view mirror -- and could be slid forward or backwards to function as a heavily tinted visor.

This was a factory-authorized accessory for the '58 Pontiac, but, again, at least one after-market manufacturer offered the item for the '59 GM cars.



What model '59 Oldsmobile do you own? I have heard that the 2-door hardtops had rear seat sunvisors to protect the heads and necks of rear-seat passengers, but have never actually seen these.

I have seen the rear sunvisors in a small glove box brochure and by gee whizz they look just like the rear sun visors I got from Ebay. I had never seen them myself either so when they came up I knew it would be a long time before I saw another set.

So I bid up big and got them for a fair price for their rarity I thought.

They sport not 1 but 2 chrome roof connectors. They are going in when I do the interior roof linning.

It's very unlikely that any company would manufacture these for the aftermarket. The demand would be way too low to make it profitable to do so.

Rear Sunvisors

Say 5998downunder, can you post a couple pictures of the rear Sunvisors you bought? I've seen them in the brochure but never for real. My car came with three sets of visors of which two are the same and one very different and meant to attach on both ends.

Not a prob. Do my best to get photos over the next day or so as they are tucked away with the rest of the gear to go back on the car. I have noticed though, that they screw into the rear headline board holding strip just above the rear window. I'll take a shot of that for you also.
