  • Fog lamp ID

    I could not locate any part number markings. Can someone shed some light on to which year(s) these are from?

    I would need a match for a 55 President if someone might have a spare that's going to York.

    Thanks,

    It's very difficult to tell the difference between a '53/'54 fog light and a '55 fog light until you try to install one on a '55 bumper. The difference is in the contoured fit to the face of the bumper. Someone who's really familiar with the two may be able to identify them from that side view. They are also left and right specific. There are always individuals, as well as sets at York, but you really need to know what you're looking for. And the shiny ones aren't cheap.

      The short ones are 55. The deeper ones are 53/54. You want the shorter for your car.

        Unless, as was my case, someone trimmed a '53/'54 housing for reasons unknown. The requisite test is fitment.

          Thanks for the info. Unpacking some part boxes and haven't been able to get to the car yet to test fit. I don't think that one lamp housing is trimmed but duly noted.
