Sometimes you get lucky

Post by nsbrassnut » Sun Nov 17, 2019 7:07 pm

Hi All

Sometimes third try is the charm. I've been trying to get a correct Canadian black and brass '15 right hand tail light for while.

Try number one, rusted out body with no chimney or top. Try number two, closer, but the brass top was cracked and damaged. Then by accident one turned up on Kijiji (Canada's Craig list), but 1000 miles away. First try I think they though I was a scammer. Then I found out it was a few miles from my brother. Second try with his help we got it and it arrived a few days ago.

So here is a rare one. A Clasco No. 9, right hand black and brass kerosene tailight, in good restorable condition.

Most impressive! I like unusual early lamps on model Ts. With all the different manufacturers, I wonder just how many different tail-lamps Ford used for the '15/'16/'17 models?

Great find Jeff. I was lucky to have the tail light for my 1915. Finding one missing sidelight was not so difficult. If anyone you know needs a pair of fork mounted electric headlight buckets, I have a pair, with most of the original black paint still covering the inside.
