  1. Does anyone recognize these lights? Ideas on make and model are much appreciated :)

    These may be 1937 or so Packard, top parking lights and sealed beams are an add on. Bob [​IMG]
  3. Second look like Guide 682-c lights.

    The last pair of lights are Guide 682-C's with what looks to be the earliest version of the top light. Cool.

    The middle pair are Ford parts, 1938-39 truck I believe, with the lighted bases.

    As for that first set, I know '36 Plymouth had those ribbed little trims on the stands like that. Looks like they have an aftermarket sealed beam kit in them and some add-on turn signals too.

    from Texas

    The lights with the oval lens in the stands (parklamps) are Ford 1 ton and COE trucks 1940-47. YES, those lenses in the stands are the same as interior door post courtesy lamp lenses on the Ford passenger cars.

  7. The stands on the bottom set look like some I had from a 40s Mack
  8. Those '40-'41 Ford big truck and '40-'47 cabover lights and stands are a bolt on swap for '38-'39 trucks.
  9. There is NOWHERE else on Earth that sits on this much combined knowledge!
    Thanks for your help, one and all.
  10. Yeah my bad mate, for some reason i couldn't see the second set the last time i viewed the thread. The last ones are the Guides i was talking to you about.
