Hi Craig

Just for info. I have been collecting information on the Canadian Clasco lights. In part as I am also restoring a '15 Canadian T.

Those marked Clasco brass tops are hard to find. I think that Ford Canada actually used plain brass top (no script or lettering) Clasco lamps for the first part of the year and that the marked ones came out later. Plain brass top side and tailights are more commonly found. I suspect some of their parts came from Brown in the US in the begining while they were tooling up. Anything brought across as parts got more favourable duties and sales.

Most '15 Canadian cars that I have seen are mounting plain brass top kerosene light.

Clasco also sold the same lights, un-marked in the after market through parts suppliers. Some were also for the older '14 style spade mount, but they would also be unmarked on top.

Good luck with the search.

PS. It took me a while to find one, and I'm also on the hunt for another. :^)

Sorry, thread drift. Here's a Ford marked steel body (Only top is brass) Clasco tail light. I suppose this is too early for 15 althogh I was considering putting this on my racer.
