‘57 Front Turn Signal/Parking Light

Post by Rusty57 »

I need 2 front die cast housings for my ‘57 TBird. I would prefer if the bulb sockets and wiring were in good condition but that is not essential. I have good lenses and gaskets.

These are reproduced. Comes with wires and socket . CASCO lists them in their catalog.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the suggestion. I am aware that reproductions are available. I assume that all the supply houses like Casco and Concurs are buying from the same source.

Unfortunately my experience with reproduction parts is not impressive. Or maybe it is impressive but the wrong way.

I might end up going with reproduction parts. I have just started my search and have some time. We are pretty much into winter here so it will be a few months before the TBird is out again.

Thank you.

I have seen those on eBay as well as a set without lenses for $275. My car is a nice daily driver so I’m not interested in that level of quality or price.

I have located a source for used housings for about $50 for the pair. I already have new gaskets and lenses. The only parts I need to add are the sockets and wiring.
