As best as I can tell, it isn't really period correct to install gas lamps on a 1923 Touring, and I am way too early in my restoration to install something like this.

I am curious where folks mount them on the car. I found the mounts/brackets in the catalogs, but I don't see an obvious location for mounting them to the car. Any advice or pics would be appreciated.

Also, am I correct that the lamps would not be something that was sold with the 1923 Touring?

No gas lamps on a '23. Technically not even the kerosene side lamps, as those were discontinued with the electric starting cars. Only on hand-crankers.

There's a hole in the front fender iron for the electric headlight stem (or, if you like, the carbide headlight fork stem).

Where do the kerosene lamps attach to the later model cars?

Looks like the bracket attaches to the bottom part of the windshield stanchions.

Windshield stanchion brackets for the side lamps held by the stanchion bolts. The lamps have a single bolt fitting to the bracket.

Nailed it!! Thanks, Dan. That's the kind of pic I was looking for.

Much appreciated.
