I replaced my lighter socket in the '69 with an off the shelf pep boys or kragan $5 replacement. The stock lighter doesn't fit (larger diameter than the socket) but I don't smoke and have a rubber no smoking plug in the socket when I'm not using it to power my cell or portable cd player. I figured if I wanted to use it as a lighter instead of a power supply I'd use a repro lighter knob and graft it to the lighter that fits the replacement socket.
I always thought it odd they repro'd a lighter but not the socket... By the way is a push-in lighter called a "rochester"? I have never heard it called that before.
I don't understand why they don't make the receptacle. I can find $4 replacement lighters at Auto parts stores but not receptacles. Go figure. I have seen the lighters refered to as Rochester. I think it's the manufacturer.
