Yes, I have an original NOS in the original box with installation instructions. I have posted photos of it here in the past. Also fit the Ford 1949-50. Police used red lights there. Incidentally they were never offered by Studebaker, after market only.

A curiosity offered as aftermarket as Richard indicated. As a fog light, driving light or illumination of any sort, it was totally dysfunctional; sole purpose was to make money for the manufacturer, sort of like pet rocks.

Note that there was one offered that turned with the wheels. Studebaker had offered a similar option called the Pilot Ray as early as 1930-31. Note the dual Pilot Rays on this model 54 Six roadster. P.S. My girlfriend and I.

Richard,
Would that be the same or equivalent to the Trippe lights?
