Did the Allis Chalmers B1 come with headlights or was it an option?

well I owned a few of them, and not one had headlights on them. And all the pictures I have seen in the brochures always shows the tractor with no headlights come to think of it. I looked threw my B1 manual I have and it dosnt say anything about headlights in it either. So Im thinking they were not an option for the B1 but I'm not 100% sure on that. Ill Scan part of a flyer i have for the B1 so you can see but all the ones iv had so far i put the lights on them myself.

Found something. They were available with lights. Here's a link to the diagram out of my parts catalog.

This is a page out of a B-1 Operator's Manual. This shows a rear light. If there is a rear light I would assume that there were front lights also available. This is a link.
