I have two of these dome light on the 53. one on either side of the divider. the are kind of brittle so we will need some lens at least. anyone got any Ida what the came off from before before Armbruster put them on a Pontiac.

Very similar to a 1950's Ford truck light...

I think perhaps rear all the way back over gate from GM wagon of the era. Looks awful familier.

it's not put in with screws just pressed in the hole and the side clips hold it in place. looking at it I'm guessing that they riveted those on but who knows. we will check these hints

I have a '52 and prior Pontiac parts catalog at home and I can check it when I get back home later this week..

thanks the lens measures 4 x 1 & 78. the worse case is I get a couple more of the tear shaped GM of those years. I haven't fully figure out there wiring as of yet still taking stuff apart. each one of these manufactures did there interiors different. this one was done in a oik cloth in back ad fabric in front. but we are getting there

getting closer I discover that eh 55 to 72 Chevy pickup use a similar lens but they are a little bigger. but in my fumbling I did find the cot light. they used a 53 courier pillar light just in front of the cot. the one in the car had been struck and the lens broken out. one problem solved
