ok, again I'm not entirely sure what these lights are off of or what their original use was. They're definitely some kind of car light, the wiring is still attached. I got them at a flea market in Palatine, IL. Please help me identify these items! I thought they were cool and the price was right so I picked them up.

    These appear to be Driving Lights. Tail lights would have been red and not pedestal mount. Look VERY CLOSELY, can you see any numbers cast into the metal, on the back or INSIDE the glass by the bulb? Can you give me the part number off the bulb and is the wire cloth covered? Does the Glass have anything cast into it? Let me know and we'll get this figured out.

    Hi Skip,
    The only numbers on the lights are as follows: "Guide 2" and then it says "SAE DP 64" there's nothing else that I can see on them, short of taking them totally apart which I don't really want to do. I hope this helps you identify them, because I'd love to know what they came off of. Thanks for your help.

    From the information you supplied, it appears to be a FRONT turn signal/parking light from a 1964 Pontiac Grand Prix. I'm new to this forum and don't know if I can insert a photo. I will try. IF NOT, you can contact me at and I can send you the photo.
    I have NO idea what that is or if you can look at it. Just let me know..

    Here is what is on eBay. I don't know what you paid for them but this may give you an idea of value. These look pretty rough, however. I didn't take a close look at the back of yours. Good luck.. here's the link to eBay.. I think...

    Hi Skip,
    Wow! That is amazing that you were able to identify these lights! So cool. I could have never imagined that they were from a '64 Pontiac Grand Prix. I was able to look at both links you provided in your comments. Thank you very much for identifying them. I really appreciate it! I paid $17 for the pair at a flea market outside of Chicago. SO if I were to sell them I would potentially make a good profit. I collect this kind of stuff so I'm definitely going to hang on to them, especially because I know what they are now. Hey, thanks again.
