A little while ago I posted about some LED bulbs I bought for the interior lights in my 50 Champion.
Some of you may remember that post, but if not I will attach the pictures of them in operation to show how much brighter they are.
Well I now have a few more to offer if anyone might be interested, but the quantity is very limited.
These are dual pole single filament type bulbs as used solely in the dash map and rear interior light.
They are 12 volt neg or pos ground
I know they fit the 50 and 51 Champions and may well fit many others if converted to 12 volt !!!!
They will NOT work on 6 volt.
They have 26 ultra bright white Leds
$10 a pair inc shipping, PM me if any ones interested.

All will be tested prior to shipping and well packed

I've seen a few rods with LED interior lights, and they are bright. Too bad they don't some in 6 volt positive ground bulbs.

I don't see where any of those say they work with positive ground.
A couple years ago I bought some that said they work for my 1950 Champion, but they didn't.

The dual pole single filament bulbs should work on either positive or negative ground. If they don't work, just rotate them 180 degrees. It's the dual filament lamps like the 12v 1157 that only go in one way that are ground sensitive.

These will work for 6 volt pos ground cars for interior lights but not as bright with 12 leds as the 12 volt ones I have using 26 leds
As Skip quoted
They do not use the cap as a contact.
It`s only the offset pin bulbs that use the cap as one of the contacts

They will still be much brighter than a regular 6 volt bulb.
If you order from China it will take about 3 weeks to get them.
