Ok, then it is not from a 1930 30U roadster with rear-mounted tire, for whatever that's worth.

Good morning:

I know I brought this topic up a while back, but does anyone know if Floyd Carlstrom is still in business?  Apparently the email address he has on the site is no good and his phone just rings with no answer or way to leave a message.

I'll try and post a picture, but it is straight if looking down on it from above.

The bulbs are listed as 6v 25/25w Ba15d #1000
The Ba15d indicates the socket style.
They fit in the original sockets, no modification needed.
They appear to be shorter in regards to the distance between the filament and the base. I had to extend them to the maximum distance to focus them properly.  I thought I might need a longer focusing screw, but I was able to focus it.
The shape of the bulb is different, but that doesn't seem to matter, except for the concern on focus adjustment.

Thanks for the responses.  It looks like the only way to see what's going on behind it is to remove the kick panel in front of the hinge, which could be a lot of work, as it appears to be tacked on.  May be a little while before I tackle this job, as I have my hands full with some other projects currently.  I'll share the findings once I get to it.

Any way to get a photo of it vertically, from the front of it?  I'm trying to see if there's a large curve on it towards the top, but a I can't quite tell.  My 30U has quite a curve to it, almost like a small "S" curve, as it bends towards the outside of the car and the top of the stalk.

John,

What halogen bulb was used and did the socket need to be updated to allow the retrofit.

Tks,  Chet...

Years ago I bought this tail light stalk from a Plymouth Club member.  It is a little different shape than the original 29U tail light stalk.  I used it for years for the right rear tail light. Can anyone tell me what year Plymouth it goes to?

I recently had my headlights rechromed.  I had the reflectors nickel plated and then sent them to Bill Atwood for his UVIRA coating. Bill still only charges $75 including return shipping.  I then installed 25 watt halogen bulbs from Bill Hirsch.  The first picture was taken with the lights off and a flash camera, while the second picture is with the headlights on.  They are much better than before.  The 25 watt bulbs draw about 4 amps each, which is about the same as the  30cp bulbs (#1000) I was using. The original equipped headlights had 21cp bulb with drew about 3 amps each.  Long ago I installed a voltage regulator in the generator and had the cutout converted to a diode with heat sink, both provided by Jim Peterson.
