Default vintage NOS fog lights!

i was digging through some old boxes the other day and came across this killer set of four NOS fog lamps and covers that my dad tucked away back in the early 80's. he bought them to put on his old bmw but never got around to it so they sat in a box all these years, never getting used! not sure about the lights themselves, i will see if i can find halogens that these covers will fit, but the covers are awesome! remind me of the mickey's logo, lol. these bad boys will soon grace the front of my surco! anyone know anything about these? i'm clueless as to the origins but whatever, they are wicked!





and here's where they are going!

Those are so sweet looking. Those can be worth some money. But would look cool on your jeep

They were a brand that was very popular in the late 70s on into the mid 80s with the sportscar set. Had a pair on a TR4 but they did require several bulb changes because the TR4 vibrated them so bad.

thanks blue! makes sense they were for sports cars since he bought em for his bmw, lol. i figured the lights themselves are junk compared to todays standards so hopefully the covers will fit newer lights then i'll just pitch these...

I have had a similar experience, i found a unopened box of Hella 115 lights in my garage from my dad's old yj project (they are square and from the 90's)
It's nice to find the free useable stuff in the garage!

Don't toss them get on a vintage sportscar racing board and sell them for enough to buy a pair of KCs or Hellas.
