    Good news for those in need of new lights

    I emailed Daniel Carpenter about new lights and was informed that they were working on doing another run of them and they should be available in about 6 months.

    That is great news!

    Glad Daniel is willing to invest in our little group. I was getting the impression that his focus had turned towards the aero Fox body cars.

    If that holds true, I need to get my hands on a set this time around! I still kick myself that I didn't find a way to fund additional front units back in the day when I had a good friend that worked behind the parts counter of a local Ford dealership. He sold me parts for his cost, which was dealer cost + 5%, so all (6) lights across the front were a whopping $180...you would have a hard time finding a good marker light for that now.

    WOW.. 180 bucks ... dang near could have put my kid through college on the return on a few sets of those!
    he also had inners.. know if he's going to repo those too ?

    Far as I know, outers haven't been repro'ed, and likely won't be, as the molds were missing.

    Compared to today's prices, they were 'stupid' cheap. I think the inner/outer lights were $20 each and the headlights were $50 each w/seals-trim. I should look through my files and see if I still have the receipt for them.

    How much were the DC units last round, anyone remember??

    I forget how long ago I got mine. The NOS headlights were $60 each at Columbus Ohio Ford swap and the inner and outer lights were about $350 for each side years later from a local dealer w/ my discount for being a frequent customer.

    Can I assume that these are the headlights and that they work on all SVOs? If so, I would like to throw my hat in the ring for a set for my 86'.

    sorry Stony, we're not the ones making them... Daniel carpenter reproductions is planning another run of them, and they will be sold through various re-sellers like PPI , etc

    They will fit ANY SVO, however they are specifically made for 85.5 and 86 SVO's, as 84 and 85 had Glass sealed beam headlights.

    There's a few pieces needed to adapt them to 84-85 SVO's but it's all pretty much bolt on (a we bit of wiring for the different headlight bulbs)

    Any word if the inner lamps will be reproduced as well? One has a chip out of the top on the 84 I just bought.


    thanks,
