    The top one and the bottom one look identical, if that is any help.

    There should be a brass tag on top just behind the marker light housing.

  7. Guide 682 C if used on GM products. Otherwise the same headlights without the brass, or aluminum tags were used on non GM products. They were used on trucks and off road construction equipment.

  9. I have close to the same lights on my '30 Tudor, the parking lights have a more rounded lens. Guess they made slightly different styles? maybe different year?
     
  10. Those headlamps look quite a bit like the one's I remember on my neighbor's 50's GMC dump truck he had back in the 70's. I posted a photo of that style truck.

  11. Some did have rounded park lenses. And various mounts, depending on application.
    OTB have all rebuild parts, including pointy lenses.
