Here's an interesting set of after market "Eyebrow" lenses for your FORD.

Jay:

I have been wondering if maybe these headlight lenses had something to do with the legal requirements also. When I bought this touring they had plain glass in them. I was going through a box lenses that I have and found these and installed them.

A424b lense

I have a piar of these seal beam lights on my 27 roadster that I use in the Montana 500. I came into a pit stop and one of the other drivers asked me what happened to my headlight. I got out and the right hand light was laying between the fender and the hood. It was held in place by the wires. When I got back to Colorado I installed these headlight. A Model t friend had given me this pair of seal beam lights. He had been to an action at an old hardware store and they were in the basement still new in the original box with directions. They fit the 1927 light bar real well so I am still using them. No telling how long they had been in the basement of the store.

Hi All

No patent found for Smith Glass Co.,
but there might have been a court case
over patent infringement at that time.

I have the Violet Ray lenses on my '15. Makes it easier to find when parked among 20 other '15 tourings!
