  • underhood light

    My 1950 champ needs a replacement underhood light. any suggestions where to find one? The old one was a on/off lever that sitches on/off when the hood is lifted and closed. I just can't seem to find one. Thanks.

    They are getting hard to find due to the fact that the old ones used mercury that acted as the conductor for the switch. Since that is a hazardous material & its disposal is difficult, most wrecking yards now take those off before putting the car in the yard.
