1967 underhood lamp
« on: March 10, 2009, 02:36:11 AM »
Can someone post a picture of an original 1967 underhood lamp.
it has a single mounting hole, and functions in reverse.
I would like to see the backside where the wire comes out.
Thanks   ???

I have one in my parts bin. I may put it on for the heck of it. Where does it plug in gentlemen? I do not possess a schematic.

It's taped, strapped, and clipped to the engine harness across the firewall and to the forward lamp harness on the driver's side inner fender, and the terminal goes under a screw connection on the horn relay.

Looks like I can use either one and just claim it is original?
Seems no one from this site will know the difference.
Funny.

I will choose lamp A as my original light.
Then I can just keep the other in it's original box

Jeff the one I thought was like the Nova one you have is not. The mounting bracket is different but the socket wire is the same, on all the lights I have. Perhaps your boxed light is OTC?

Picture posted on pacecarjeff's is correct. Believe lamp socket and shroud are all the same , but brackets are different.   Bill

Jeff,
I have a 69 lamp and could take a picture if it would help you. I would need your e-mail .

No the 68 and 69 lamp is different.
67 was a 1 year only that had only one mounting screw - it also faced the other way and worked backwards.


the back (the wire connection) is what I am concerned about - I am finding some discrepancies.

below is an original underhood lamp which went into production in 68
The 68 and 69 lamps were very common as they were used for many years - well into the mid 70's with no design change - it has 2 mounting screws.

Thanks - that is what I believe also.  Still leaves me with a few questions -
the boxed NOS unit shows a part number that was for 57-59 Chevrolet full size.
but the design is what I would have expected for 67? 
It may just be that a different vendor was used during that 1967 time period.
