1920's dash board light

Recommended Posts

Have no dash light on my 1923 Model 45 Buick.  Anyone know where I can get on???  Another friend has a 1923 four cylinder roadster who needs a trunk lock for his car.

I have a bunch of them, for 1918 Buick. Maybe they would fit. What is the size of the socket hole on the dash where it would fit?

Restoration Supply in Ca advertises reproduction dash board lamps, perhaps model T suppliers as well.

 

Good luck, Gary

Tom,

     I have a friend who has a 1923 Buick Roadster that uses a trunk T wrench.  Is your friend looking for a T wrench or the whole lock & key?

 This is the instrument lamp cross reference.

Dash lamps.  I found a complete lamp, base and fixture at a flea market and felt very good at 5.00 until I paid the plater over a $100 for new nickel.  Repro is around $35, depends if you want a lamp or show piece?

 

Think spring, Gary

They should look like these. Need to have a shade, a base unit with a nut (that big nut would be hard to find), and the internal bulb contact with wire and working spring. Otherwise it won't work.
