    Picked this one up, it's in nice shape but I can't ID it. I thought it was zephyr at first but not the same bucket as a zephyr unless I'm looking at the wrong one.

    The lens looks like Zephyr, but not the bucket. It's cool whatever it is. Only got one?

    I was looking at Auburn Speedster close but no cigar... that's a toughy...I will surmise that has a double that may have had a license plate bracket and plate light as well. One thing for sure it's a beautiful example of the fine art of Automobile design of the Deco 30s...

  12. It is from a 1935 Chrysler Airstream (not Airflow). A rare piece. This one seems to have replacement or non-original lenses. 1935 Chrysler Airstream rear.jpg

    Chaddilac, can you remove the lens from the tail body? I want to see the bottom of the lens. I picked up 3 class lens very, very similar to the lens on this tailight. I thought it was for my Zephyr tailights but they are about half the size. The bottom mount of the lens is very similar to bottom of the Zephyr lens. It has tabs at the bottom. If you can post up just the lens, I will post up the pics of the lenses I have.

    I couldn't get it to come apart, although I didn't try very hard as I didn't want to destroy it.

    Steady hands rule the day on taking that one apart. Maybe put a soft towel on a bench or table so it will not roll off.

    Sometimes in a really filthy public bathroom it seems close is good enough there too.
