'50 Special with a single auxiliary light?

Recommended Posts

Did any post-war Buick (or any other post-war car, for that matter) come with a single fog or aux driving lamp? I have evidence of something having been mounted on the passenger side of my very original '50 but nothing at the corresponding driver side location. Trying to figure out what was attached there.

With a grill like that, I'm guessing a large tooth pick?

 

With the license plate on one side, I bet the hole was for a fog light on the other to balance things out.  You have our permission to relegate the front plate and bracket to the trunk.  It never looked right on the 1950.

 

Great car!

No wiring, so I guess flagpole is in the lead at this point. 

 

It is a great car. Bought it at BCA in Milwaukee and had fun with it all summer. Still learning about it, though.

Correct, but I've never seen a picture of a post-war Buick with just one fog light

I don't believe that accessories like fog lights were available on the car from the factory.

GM dealers had those as genuine GM accessories and the dealer installed them.

I worked at a Chevy dealer while in HS in the beginning  of 1956.  That dealer ordered all the cars without radios, outside mirrors, bumper guards and other accessories

and that was filler work for the mechanics.

I also agree with the post above that the single light could have been something like a red light for a volunteer fireman.
