  • headlights

    Does anyone know what the NAPA parts number (or other readily available outfit) is for headlights for my '59 Lark? Low beam just went out on the passenger side. Thanks.

    A 12 volt round bulb, sealbeam should do the trick,two total headlight system. Try a halogen H6024 ,I subistuted this and it is so much better than a sealbeam the amps are not much more.

        yes. Are you running sealed beams? If so then I would get yourself some reflectors that take H4 bulbs (Cibie are excellent) and then you can get 6V H4 halogen bulbs from various Porsche or VW parts places. I am not aware of any 6V halogen sealed beams, but that doesn't mean that someone doesn't make them.

        Actually I recommend the Cibie reflectors anyway, even for 12V. Also a relay harness. One caveat; "E-code" or European beam pattern headlights aren't legal everywhere in the US, but they sure do work better (lots of light down low on low beam with a sharp cutoff so as not to blind other drivers, but amazing high beams)

            If you just want a plain headlight like original, use a number 6014. Nothing special, millions of cars used them for years and they are readily available anywhere.

              H 6024 is the 12 volt halogen #. A 6 volt halogen would make sense for a 6 volt replacement. Was the Lark in 1959 6 volt? If so the 12 volt H6024 would not work.

                Studebaker went to the 12 volt system beginning with the 1956 models.
