    From what I can tell, they appear to be Guide/BLC 682-J lights but there was no tag on them and no holes for a tag. They are clearly stamped Guide on the bottom, anybody got any idea? Wanna unload them but want to be educated on what they are for sure if possible.

    looks like 682j's.......if i'm not mistaken , i believe this style of guide light came on some years ( 30's ) of GM trucks, someone will chime in here and correct me if i'm wrong...
  3. Likely aftermarket replacement to sealed beams, 1940+

    These are definitely Guide or BLC 682-J headlights. Let me know if you would like to know more about them. To add further they were developed by the Guide Division of GM in 1940 to house the then new sealed beam type lamp. They were used on the commercial trucks of GMC and Chevy. The BLC units (same product) was sold to other truck makers.
