Re: 1958-59 GMC Park Lamps

To the best of my knowledge they are not being reproduced. About 10 years ago Jim Carter was selling reproductions but no longer is. Then there was an eBay seller with a metal version he was selling, they looked similiar but not original.

I bought mine on eBay as GMC NOS about 10 years ago. The last complete set I heard of sell there was for $1350.....



Rumor on Stovebolt a couple of summers ago was that Pat Wilson was designing a reproduction set. Try emailing him at patwilsondesign@nc.rr.com

He lists the cone lenses for these lights on his website http://www.patwilsondesign.com/products2.html




1958 and 1959 GMC parking light cone lenses reproduced to exact likeness thru a mold process. $75.00 for the pair.

They are not reproduced. If you watch the American Pickers show on TV you will have noticed that in at least two episodes they have walked by old TF GMC's with the grill and lights intact, not knowing what they were passing. I am always on the prowl for them when I look for parts.

Re: 1958-59 GMC Park Lamps

If it's the lenses only, aren't they the same as 55-56 chevy? LMC lists them as such...
http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/ca/full.aspx?page=106
Or are you referring to the part behind the lens?

Re: 1958-59 GMC Park Lamps

Update, stumbled across this tonight.



958 and 1959 GMC parking light bezel lenses reproduced to exact likeness thru a mold process. $180.00 for the pair. These are clear only and would require a chrome paint finish to look correct. These are an exact duplicate of the original clear down to the "R" and the "L" plus the original numbers! Shipping is $6.10 US only

I bought mine in pieces, rh frame separate from lh and the cones separately. The $1350 set was bought by a guy in Saskatoon that I meet at a car show. Maybe that is the set you sold?
