    This is my first post..

    I sent a pic of this to my dad, he wasn't sure of the make or model but guessed 50s. He is a frequent visitor of HAMB and told me to post on here. I did my own own research for a bit but the interwebs told me nothing. So I am asking you gurus if you can identify it?

    I was rooting around the basement in my house and I found a secret crawl space with a pile of old metal parts. Buried in it was a tail light and bezel. The light is glass and a separate piece. The part numbers are 6270 for the bezel and 6142 for the lens.

    I just love investigating these things and inquiring minds want to know!! All input is appreciated!

    Thanx no, I have a couple of extras already...but appreciate the offer.

    Thanx Redliner, I too, have a complete front clip for a Commander...and I'm certain your Champion clip won't fit my larger Commander...!!! BTW, the first book is here, waiting on you...!!!

    Thanx,

    Meegs; Keep an eye peeled for the other one. Those would make great turn signals on the rear fenders of my T, if I can afford them.

    Kinda takes the fun out of it, when someone gets it right away. Someone said on he once "within 10 post's you will have your answer". Every part I have posted this comes ture.


    Thanks H.A.M.B.

    I was set to do some research when the '40 Stude taillight was identified by 40StudeDude.:D
    It's sorta like asking Gutzon Borglum about Mount Rushmore...you're gonna get an answer, quick.
