Lorraine Spotlight question


Pacman 37
 Share

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a Lorraine spotlight for my 37 Packard. This light is a bulb style rather than a sealed beam and is marked with the Packard crest. I am interested in the history and evolution of Lorraine products and am wondering if it is period correct. I see many of the Unity sealed beam lights out there and some even have the Packard nameplate on them. Were sealed beam lights common in 37? I would really prefer the style that has a mirror mounted but I believe those to be mostlty post-war. 

 

Any info would be appreciated.

Sealed beams headlights date from late 1939 for the 1940 model year. They probably didn't make it into any accessory lights until at least 1941 (if even then). If it happened at all, they would have been a new novelty, not something common. Then the war came.

 

I suspect most sealed beam accessory lights you come across are postwar.
