Obviously 6V and I believe an A model headlight.

careful those plastic standoff sockets are held in place by a 1mm brass rivet inside, very fragile, only press or pull directly away or into the socket. no sideways wiggling if the wire is tight.

I think Mike's got it.
Michael - can you post another picture of the bottom and dust it off so the numbers are visible?

The light control schematic has the light green box ( like the relay) and that part number listed at the top. Greg’s wiring diagrams should be in every trunk, and a large one on the wall next to every 356 in the world. I probably use the every other day when bringing a car back to life.
