To all,

Would a 43 have a rotary light switch ?

Hopefully yes :)! Otherwise I would have to change my switch.
According to jeepdraw the transition from p-p switch to rotary was made during the period of June-July 1944.

I was thinking the same thing, Yves! I looked on jeepdraw, but wasn't able to quickly find the reference you did. Thanks for posting that.

How can it be “original” and “restored” simultaneously?

By restoring the original parts and panels. A lot of the guys on here have done it superbly.
