Included are photos of an E&J and C.L.A.S.C.O. cowl lamps. By this time CLASCO was in business making lights for Ford of Canada for about a year. It looks like the upper stampings between the square body and the brass caps are identical. The reflectors inside seem to be identical as well. The remainder of the components are different. The Windsor Ontario records shows CLASCO starting up around 1913 and I believe that they started by making all brass cowl and tail lamps until making the style shown here. Has anyone seen an all brass CLASCO? The two companies were only across the river from each other so chances are they shared components until CLASCO was able to make their own stampings. thanks Kevin

I have seen square E & Js , brass top with the latter style font. They look similar to the Clasco, but with E & J markings. I have been told they are late production for the 1914 style open Ts made in early 1915.

OK so the CLASCO looks very close to the Model 12 on the page. I noticed the E&J in the first photos has a brass chimney where the black paint is scratched off.
As a educated guess CLASCO was assembling parts brought across the river from Detroit.
thanks
