    Is that the one that turns with the front wheels? I've seen one on EBay a couple years ago. I just made my own using a old head light off my old TBucket. Then found a 6v yellow fog light bulb - it worked really good. Yours look great.

    Hey that's a great price.
    Here's a pix of my old shoebox - used some old parts left over from my TBucket. I would love to do the same thing to my '52 but the bullet opening is too small.

    I know those foglights,but i've never heard of the automatic controlled ones.I saw an Euro-Ford commercial just few weeks ago and the newest invention was automatic controlled headlights.
    I guess that wasnt so new invention after all that they let people know..

    I don't know why people don't use them as a Kustom accessory . They look great. These are the things that made this era in automobiles amazing. Just like the Pontiac Indian head hood ornament that lit up.

  16. Those were cool to me when I was a little kid, they still are. I guess nothing really changes from when you are little to when you are old. ;)

  18. A friend in Warsaw has a 50 shoebox coupe with the light that turns with the wheels. He found it NOS at Auburn. He's had it for years.

    My first car was a 49 Ford with the fog light in the middle that turned with the front wheels and also had a vacuum wiper on the back window.. Wish I had it back...

    This reminds me, I've got the one that turns with the front wheels. It's been in storage since ~1970's. Here's a couple pictures. (Update: 6/2/15), the light sold, going to leave these pictures here just for people to look at.)

    My grandfather had it all planned out 65 years ago and collected a lot of stuff. It's all for sale, like the '49 Shoebox "Turn-a-Beam".

    Cadillac, Packard and some others had pilot ray lights (driving lights that turned with the headlights, only there were TWO pilot ray lights side by side on a bar!) back in 1929. Nothing is new!
