Impulse buy of the day. Wicked cool art deco taillight. Help Identify.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Hitchhiker, Jun 2, 2011.

  1. So I bought a pretty cool tail light today.I think I paid to much. :eek: It was an impulse buy. Only got one. Got it from a scrapper. I know I've seen similar on 1930's Chrysler, Hudson, and Desoto type cars. I've been googling and can't place the exact year. Anyone know what this fits exactly? I'm hoping I can find a match. If not, maybe I will run a single or let it turn into garage art. ;)

    Use it to make a really cool "third" brake light on your Model A.

    If your car isn't chopped alot it would fit under the back window I would guess.

    That is cool you now know what it is, we bought a light for our Model A, still have no idea what it was from, but it is mounted as our "third" brake light.

  8. Thanks! Looks like they are Desoto. I was a little off on my years and combination of makes. Now I need to find another for cheap. :D can't believe the price on the nice complete set!

  9. Keep an eye on Ebay. They come through all the time mislabeled, and pieces and parts.

    Here is a lense that I just missed out on last week.

    Here are a few more up now for sale

  10. thanks man. I'll keep an eye out.

    Buy a bike to build around it if you dont want to use it as a third light???????????
  14. I like the way greenblood thinks! Unit Triumph bobber!
  15. The though had crossed my mind....and I am the type of crazy that would build something around a single part. :rolleyes:
  16. I found listings of 4 different single lights over the last year. ranging from $25-$200 dollars....but they were already sold. At least there is hope.
