1936 zephyr tail lights, whole or parts, needed

Recommended Posts

I need parts for the 1936 streamlined tail lights.

Really need one of the chrome stainless rings that lock the glass lens into place.

Also need two of the clear glass lens that illimnate the license plate.

 

Could also use a license plate stand bracket;

OR, a complete tail light.

I do have parts I could trade off to get what I need.

Thanks in advance,

John

Larry,

I searched everywhere.

Parts go back to sept of 2017.

Went back into Lincoln/zephyr too.

I must be searching wrong somehow?

Can you set me straight,

Thanks in advance,

john

Boos Harrel had some at one time.  Look on the club sources and there should be some available.  Parts are getting harder to find these days.  80+ YO things do get a bit rare as time progresses!   Someone has been making the LED versions of the 39 tail lights also.  Ebay might have some, but doubtful!

RAY 500,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, very hard to find now days, but needed for the futuristic Harris Speedster.

 

Yes again, Boos Harrel did sell me some extra parts, 5-6 years ago, hell of a nice guy, straight forward and honest.

I do check ebay often for the tail lights, or parts.

ONE good thing, I do have extra parts for the 36 zephyr tail lights to trade off.

 

Searching for a reasonably priced STARTIX also.

12 inch diameter Midget racing wire wheels from the late 1920's >>>  

11 inch X 2 inch steel brake drums from what I believe are from a Chevrolet truck, mid-late 1920's.?

Sooo many obscure parts he used to build his machine.

 

Thank you for the reply, and the help, I TRULY appreciate it. 

After 30 years of ownership, I need to finish the story, and get the car to a recognized restoration facility.

In the world this car will live in, people like me would be frowned upon for the process>>>>> I HATE that, because many of us here are as good>> if not better than those pedigree shops>> Oh well !!!!!!

Respectfully submitted,

John

Larry,

I was looking in the wrong place.

I thought you meant here in AACA.

I was looking in the wrong site.

Thanks for setting me straight.

I sent the guy an email, he is in the UK.

 

No big deal though, as it can be shipped over the pond, as they say !!

Thanks again, this is what makes AACA such a great club !!!!!

John
