WTB. E&J 456 headlight for 1915 Centerdoor

Post by Robert Kiefaber » Wed Oct 23, 2019 11:04 pm

I am in the final phase of restoration of a 1915 Centerdoor sedan. This car used the larger belled headlight. I have a comparison in the photo of the regular 1915 headlight and the one I need (on the right). I just need one to complete the set. Call or text me at.....2605713657......

Robert,
I always thought the 1915 model sedan initially used gas headlamps, then switched to electric with the buckets mounted on the same forked mounts. Your example does not appear to have the forked mounts, so must have been a third type used in 1915. Is that your understanding?

Daniel, the 1915 Centerdoor sedan headlamps did not use the forks, but it is possible that the Canada sedans used them. The first prototype sedan did have the gas headlamps.
