Would someone please tell me why there is no name on my 1914 headlights? No sign of any previous info, just a smooth top.

Polished off over 100 years? Re-pop? Aftermarket?
I'm out of ideas! :-)

This car was made on 10/1/1913. It has many carry over parts from 1913 car. Could Ford have manufactured their own headlights at that time to supplement other manufacturers in order to keep up with demand? This is the same time all cars went black because of high demand.

If you show some other pictures of the headlight, maybe it would help to identify.

I found this photo taken during the covered bridge tour in Parke County, Indiana. Great tour highly recommend it. Lot of clean up after.

CLASCO headlight

there are lots of blank headlights around, all brands, all sizes, not unusual at all. in the old days the manufacturer sold the same lights at the hardware store that were being sold on new cars only without the brand name on the chimney. same as today, you can buy aftermarket parts, or you can go pay more at a dealer. many, then, as now, prefer the cheaper route.

Did CLASCO lights come out of the factory or were they aftermarket?

The Clasco lamps were used on Canadian produced Fords.
