Hi all. Can someone please help me identify these lights. Is this GM late 30's?
1940 chevy park light?
Thanks Jim. Looks very possible... Let's see if someone else agrees
Yup .. pass. or truck ...
I need one of those for my old Schwinn.
I wonder if truck and car were the exact same housing..
Yes the same, unless the truck was a COE. Part number 916998 towards the bottom
They are the same. HRP
Almost six hours. You must have been sleeping!
Thanks, everyone. I feel very confident now that these lights fit both Chevrolet 1940 cars and trucks.
The lenses in those were only used that year so they're pricey if you drop and break one. Don't ask how I know.
Looks right to me.
These are also correct for a 39 Chev sedan taillight. I can't remember if coupe used the same light. Also taillight for 48-53 Chev panel and suburban. Not sure if it was on all or just some of the years.
Sorry but no, completely different light assembly. On the 40 everything is smaller (housing, lens, bezel), different mounting.
