    I have this light mounted on the deck lid of a barn find 32 Ford hot rod. Trying to ID what it is. The taillights look like late 40s Pontiac, but I can’t find any lights on similar cars that look like this. On my car it was mounted over the license plate bracket, which I don’t have. Anybody out there that knows what this came off of originally?

    Could be aftermarket. But you might get some info by removing it and looking for numbers on the base.

    Looks like a stern light off an old boat.

    I recognize that as a Chevy truck housing...not like the mystery one, at all.
