28Q headlights
« on: June 02, 2012, 07:58:28 AM »
I am looking into purchasing new headlights. i believe that ford model A use the same light as plymouth did. Is this correct?
If so would these lights work

The once that are on the car need a lot of work and would be easier and more reliable to source new ones. Plus they are far from original looking.

Thank Ian

Ford Model As did not use the same headlights as our 28 and 29 or 30U Plymouths. Fords were stainless steel and I believe Ford was the only car in that era to use stainless in it's headlights,rad shell and cowl band. Ours are chrome plated steel buckets made by Depress Beam. They are bigger and fatter than Fords. Desoto shared the Plymouth Depress Beam headlights in those early years.

Dodge used stainless is some of its trim such as cowl bands, trunk ornaments ect. at least as early as 29 cars
