if they do be very careful the red ink stamp comes off very easily.

My April of '69 Van Nuys car has GE headlights, just wondering whereabouts (and in what format) the date code is on them, so I can see if they could be the originals.... although I cannot use them on the highway here in Australia, headlights must dip to the left, not to the right.

on the T3 it would be found on the back side in a red ink screened manner it seems. You actually have to remove them to see if the red date stamp is on there.

I just happened to come across some close-up pictures of some GE Power Beam headlights, and realised they are not the same as the ones on my car. Mine have "GENERAL ELECTRIC" and "SEALED BEAM" on them, but not the round  "POWER BEAM" in the center. Will get a picture tomorrow, but was this type of GE lamp also used from the factory as well as the T3 Guide and Power Beam?

Hey Tim, while I can't help you with "sealed" or "power" beam portion. Here is a pic of the date code on mine when I removed it from my car. I decoded the date at that time it is original to the car.

Here is the decoder, I am not sure if the power/sealed beam used the same dating method:

here`s a few pics of the powerbeams, not sure how to decipher the date code. the code read 6014 on top, the middle read 14  '4   22  the bottom read (large dot on each side of 12) 12 and another character i could`nt make out next to the 12 and before the dot, maybe a V ?
