Username Post: 1950 Chevy Deluxe Fuse Box?        (Topic#245468)

I have a 1950 Chevy Deluxe that is fully restored. It is all original except pant job. I recently brought it to a body shop to get some paint touched up. It still has the 6 V electoral system in it but the body shop did not know that so they jumped it with a 12 V. Before I brought it to them the radio and clock was working fine. Now it is not. I thought that the body shop may have blown a fuse for them both, but upon looking for a fuse box I did not find one. I checked my 1949-54 Chevy shop manual and it had nothing on a fuse box, also I looked up for a fuse box in parts books and found it. But I still can not find the location of it. So can anyone tell me weather or not does a 1950 Deluxe have a fuse box or not and where can I find it on the car? Also if you know what is wrong with the clock and or radio that would be help too? Thanks

Look up under the dash to the right of the steering column, there may be an accessory fuse panel installed there. Donn

Look for in-line fuses for everything. Electric clock, huh? Most are wind-up.

Steve you were right about the clock. I forgot that it is a wind-up. As for as the radio, still trying to get it to work.

Bob is correct there is no fuse panel from the factory and most accessories such as the radio had an inline fuse in it. They made a small acc fuse panel that you mounted on the fire wall under the dash. My car had one put in from the dealer and my radio is wired to it and so is my electric clock. The light for the clock goes to the ignition switch. The fuse panel is shown in the acc. installiation book and you see NOS ones for sale on ebay every once in a while.

It is possible to jump a 6V with a 12V but all accessories, lights, must be turned off first. Held on to long the sending unit in the tank will also go. If the radio was turned on it is possibly fried by the 12V. My guess is you will be talking to the body shop about the cost of repair.
