    They look similar to Arrow 775,s.
    Is anything stamped on the top and where do the headlight wires come out?

  8. There were a lot of lights made by different manufacturers that are very similar. Big truck manufacturers generally outsourced parts like headlight assemblies rather than making their own, and they were sold through the aftermarket as a replacement for older vehicles with bulb and reflector lights and a single stud mount. Back in the day, you could buy a pair of lights like this as cheap as a sealed beam conversion kit and they looked better than the sealed beam conversion in the stock buckets.

    I like the way they sit on a stock light bar, not too high

    Cool lights and look like 903J or autolamp 450s a picture of each of them. The arrow had the screw in the trim ring and dont see that in the pictures. What’s cool about the auto lamp its a brass housing .. image.jpg

    They aren't Arrows, they have two small holes for the wiring.

    They are just like the ones I stole off my Uncle's tractor, still have them 60 years later, just looked, no name on top..

    Funny !!
    I ask him if he did much plowin' at night? " He said , "Not since some dirty Bastard stole my headlights," I said: "Hey, I ain't dirty. " He said ' I figured as much when I saw those black headlights on yer '29 Tudor"
    I really miss Uncle Bob,
    He died young about 40 years ago. A Farmer, he always wore farmer bib overalls, rolled his own cigs, ( prince Albert tobackee ) and would fix ANY DARN THING.
    ( not exactly accurate, but I did get headlights that came on his tractor)
    he was very generous to me.

    You can see the grounding rivet next to the hole that the guide lights use on the 903J and 904A headlights along with the notch and looks like it was taken apart because it doesn’t have the original rivets, now lets see the rest of the 1932 ford

    Definitely BLC or Guide 903 (they’re the same) with the little tag missing. The trim ring style gives it away.

    I’ve used them on two shitheaps I’ve had/have... not the same lights, just the same BLC 903.
