Petroleum Cowl Lights and glass mirror Buick 1912

Recommended Posts

At our 1912 Buick we have these nice petroleum cowl lights but they are in a very bad shape so we will replace them with new ones (new authentic will be ok). Where could we buy these lights? <BR>One glass mirror in a head light is broken. The head lamp is a Gray & Davis Model 96. The diameter is around 6 inch and the glass is at the rim around 0.6 inch thick and at the center of the glass around 0.2 inch thick. Is it possible to get such a glass mirror? <BR>Thanks in advance<P>Tom<P>------------------<BR>Thomas Borchers<BR>Member of AACA # 004829<BR>HCCA and MAFCA

Thomas,<P>I know there are places you can buy new lamps, but I do not know an specific places. I too will be needing E & J lamps for my E-M-F. If you find a place for new lamps, please let me know too.<P>A friend of mine recently bought a 1909 Stanley and it had repro lights on it that are the same as what I need, so I know they are available. How do I know they were repro? Another friend who is into lamps could tell the difference. He pointed it our to me, but It was insignificant as far as I was concerned.<P>Let me know if you find a source!!<P><BR>John M.

Dear John.<BR>You should try it here:<P>Veteran Auto Lamps<BR>94 Princess Street<BR>TE AWAMUTU 2400<BR>NEW ZEALAND <A HREF="http://www.veteranautolamps.com" TARGET=_blank>www.veteranautolamps.com</A> <BR>Phone: +64+78713854<BR>Fax: +64+78713875<BR>Email: ken.trish@veteranautolamps.com<P>It is of course outside the country but it seems to be a good source for brass lights and gas generators.<BR>They are members of the HCCA like me.<P>Good luck<P>Tom
