While on the subject of pickups; I have a 47 built in April, it has the bulb headlights and they work fine. When did they switch to sealed beam lights?

The bulb type lamps were dropped at around CC-38693 which puts it in April of 1948 when they switched to seal beams, finally.

I went to NAPA for 2 head lights for the Crosley, they gave me 2 of them but they are to small. I can't seem to find any that fit properly, does anyone know were I can get the right size sealed headlight beams. Thanks Ron

They must be really stupid kids at your NAPA. The # for the headlight is 6006. That # works at any auto store. Barry

Thanks for the help, but it seems I'm the stupid one. I went out to look at the thing one more time and noticed that one head light bucket is for a sealed beam and the other one isn't. By chance does anyone have a sealed beam bucket to sell or know of a replacement.

A sealed beam headlight should fit in your headlight bucket, no matter if it had a sealed beam or a Mazda (2 piece bulb and beam assy)headlight assy, unless it is something I don't know about. Barry

Barry what the problem is, the headlight ring will not tighten down far enough to hold the headlight from moving. It seems to be a bigger bucket. The bucket fits in the fender but the outer measurement is larger, this lets the headlight set further in the bucket.Dim Headlights
