Are these repros.?

Tom, I purchased these lights over 10 years ago with a set of original Model 666 Headlights and an original early Carbide Generator. The Fellow I purchased these lights from said that they were restored originals but I believe that they are reproductions.

Larry, do you know who made Repro lights back then?

Not sure,
I use to buy reproduction lights and radiators from two brothers in California around 15 years ago who made them but just don't remember their names.

I believe you are thinking of Gilbert Metal Products. From memory, they were in El Monte. One brother did brass and one made sheet metal. The radiator and light business was sold to Greg Goviea (spelling?? ) who later started Brassworks and eventually sold it to the current Brassworks owners. Somewhere in my stacks of paperwork, I have original "flyers" from Gilbert. I believe new brass radiators were about 200.00 when I started with Model Ts and early fenders were less than 100.00. At least two of my cars have their radiators and fenders. They were nice guys and used to sell parts at most of the local SoCal Swap Meets.

There should be a way to tell the difference between the Repos and the Originals. Maybe someone who knows can chime in here.

I thought the major owner was Gilbert Erickson. His cousin lived in Shorewood MN.

Their reproductions were all E&Js. Someone in Chicago reproduced John Brown model 15 headlights in the 1950s.

It was Gilbert and Wayne Erickson aka Gilbert Metal Products. I believe Wayne is still in business but makes custom metal and brass work for non-automotive purposes such as kitchens, building decorations, etc. Maybe someone else has more updated information.

Wayne Erickson runs Gilberts. He makes things lie industrial ventilation turbines,n and still makes lamps.

Originals have brass covered mounting brackets. Repros have cast brass.

These lights Have the cast mounting brackets.

Vic Billstrom in California made extremely good quality brass lamps for a number of early automobiles in the late sixties

Did the different repos have some kind of a mark or distinguishing way of noting the difference between them and the originals?
