I pretty sure they had a switch on the box, and yes it does have to have one and work for a RWC.

Mine has a switch hanging off the bottom of the shifter linkage. Do you need reverse lights to pass if your car never had them from the factory? (76 XB)

They used the blinkers as reverse lights on the old stuff. Even HQ holdens had that.

Thanks for that, I'll knock something up to make the blinkers come on as a reverse light to keep the boys in blue happy.
