Looking at the thread "1916 survivor" yesterday showed a pair of fine looking electric side lights. Were these original Ford parts? I have never seen them before. Now I am looking for a pair.

Thanks, Erik

They are from some other brand of car. Not Ford.

Erik,
Is it the sytle that you are attracted to?, or is it the fact that they are electric?

You see a lot of them from Canada.

They're authentic accessory lamps - I have 2 different styles and they are made for Ford side lamp brackets - photos later.

I have two authentic styles and there is a 3rd type that is quite rare and I do not have even a photo That I can find.

It looks just like a miniature headlight.

I have an extra original cast iron 1926 Left Side Lamp Bracket, T-45160, but I have never found a Right Side, T-45159 Bracket yet, so my lights have never been mounted.

The C-Cab truck photo in the Ford March 15, 1927 Price List of Body Parts shows the lamp bracket installed, but does not provide the part number in the text.

I believe this was a made for Ford item.

That above bracket is shown in the Model T Ford Price List of Parts Effective March 1, 1930 without the electric light being mentioned.

The text identifies it as 7845ARX Bracket Right for 1915-22, 7845BX Bracket Right for 1919-22, 7846ARX Bracket Left for 1915-22, or 7846BX Bracket Left for 1919-22.

There is evidently a mistake in the name under the photos, as the BX photo does not have the light holder and the AX photo has a light holder.

If the light was removed and the contact area was sandblasted clean, the correct part number would probably show up.

Some aftermarket jobber fitted an electric socket in the kerosene lamps.

Here are some electric cow lights :-)




OK, OK so cabin fever IS setting in!

I think Dennis is trying to milk this for all he can. He comes from a good family but the Model T has been a bad influence.
Get out of the Cabin and into the frying pan.

Rich

by the way, nice lights.
