1964 Replacement Shower Faucet

Where can I find a 3.5 inch stem to stem shower faucet replacement for a 1964 land yacht?

I looked everywhere for one of these faucets when mine went bad in 1995. At that time, before so many things became available on the Internet, I couldn't locate anything even vaguely similar. When I was sourcing materials for the refurbishment project on my 1920s bungalow, I found a very similar faucet design with the needed diverter that you can find at this link.

I purchased most of the faucet sets for my refurbishment from the company above, and have been very pleased with their quality.

Good luck with your project!

My bath faucet on our '65 died a few years back, and it ended up being a learning experience. The 3.5" faucet is what is used on clawfoot tubs- you can sometimes find one in a dusty cardboard box in the oldest hardware store near you. Ask the oldest employee you can find. Of course, a search for "clawfoot tub faucet" on ebay will get a huge amount of overly ornate weirdness, and a few very useful options.
You may also be able to bring the faucet in to the hardware store and just replace the worn out parts.

Good luck!

In a 1964 GT that I had to refurbish, the owner had me to elongate one of the holes in the fiberglass and we installed a standard 4 inch spread faucet. The enlarged hole is hidden behind the faucet trim plate.
