These came on some of the early model Bush Hogs, but I suspect they were on other types of GT's or other pieces of equipment.

 

The piece of 2x6 behind the light is to give you a reference of size. (no tape measure on hand at that time :-))

 

Please PM if you have any to sell.

I don't have any, but the were used as marker lights on Spartan travel trailers in the '40s and '50s. Made by KD Lamp, Cincinnati.

We had lights like that on a motorcycle trike conversion and I broke the glass on 1.

We found replacements that were LED and just plugged into the regular 1157 bulb socket.

I will attempt to find out what we bought.

Do you have to have the piece of wood with it.

OK, this light is a 1938/39 Ford tail light. You can google this and check out your options.

It looks right but my fender does not have a cut out for the back area of the light....the back of my light is flat. Thanks for helping! I figure  it was on something else......most of the accessories were farmed out by the manufacturers.

I think the 38/39 Ford lights are a bit longer as well.

Found Scott a pair of them.  I can't afford a dime on anything other than absolutely needed, so I wanted Scott to have them.
