71 Road lamp bulbs
« on: February 22, 2021, 02:52:57 PM »
Anyone out there have for sale, or know of a source for a pair of OEM 71 Cuda Road Lamp bulbs...? 
I'm looking for the correct GE bulbs that say "FOG" on them.  I saw one NOS set for $169 on ebay....seems a bit high.  I don't mind a used pair (as long as they work).  If not, I may go with the incorrect non "FOG" ones that are readily available.

The correct assembly line bulbs were actually Westinghouse made, and they didnít have the word FOG in the glass. If you would like an NOS set of them, PM me, I also have NOS GE ones that do say FOG, in either clear or yellow.

Do you have a pic of the Westinghouse bulbs?

That is an absolutely correct statement, they were Westinghouse.  The GE is no more than the GE4415 Fog bulb that was being produced up until very recently.

Thanks for everyone's comments and input.  Seems like there's a bit of disagreement on which bulbs were installed on the assembly line?  Some say the Westinghouse, others claim the GE with "FOG" depending on who you talk to....
I'm thinking either could be considered correct but the more I read and research, the more I'm leaning towards the Westinghouse.

Some good leads on NOS, Repros, GE, Westinghouse...now to make a decision... :thinking:

Hell, maybe I'll buy a pair of each!

I have no doubt these were used.
But I never saw or recall them on a Cuda' before.

My 71' wears it's original Westinghouse and GE headlights.
GE's were added.
