  I'm working on restoring a 1962 100A and ran in a problrm. Does anyone have any idea what these hole in the hood are for? I've checked all the lists & manuals I have and can't find any use for them. There were 2 broken tabs attached when I got the Jac (they are shown in the second pic.

   DUH!! HEADLIGHTS!!. Must be after market. The only light kits I can find in accessory for jacs are the square ones for 800s and later. these mount in the grill.

The brackets on the ones in the picture appear to mounted toward the outside of the hood. The brackets on mine were toward the front.. 

   What is the hole in the center for? Hood ornament?

I think that center hole was for one bulb.
