I’m looking for photos of the front turn signal and rear tail light assemblies. I know the bezels and the glass is different but are the bases the same as a 53- pre a. I hope someone can help just want to see what I need to be hunting for.

Thanks,
Tony

Going thru my box of old lights I found two single wire housing’s that “could” work on the rear but not the front as the screw spacing in to narrow. Anyone have any thoughts?

David,

Thank you for posting pictures but after getting some info outside the registry these are what the early lights look like. Now to try and find a set.

Thanks
Tony

Hey Tony, the lenses are reproduced in italy. Did you find info on them? I will dig through my 'early stuff box' but not sure i have turn signals. Do you have the rectangular tail light setup already?

Jules,

Yes I have the square lights and I know a couple places sell the lenses. Karman Konection in the UK has the housings but if had some orginals that would be great.

Thanks
Tony

we have the lenses available, we had them made. the ones made in Italy are not 100% correct. We also have the aluminum bezels. Bezels were made by 2 suppliers for Porsche, some were aluminum and the others were chromed steel. pick whichever.
bases for the lenses can be bought from Karman Konnection.
