Beehive Bezels

#1 Post by Jim Wayman »

I have noticed that there are 2 sizes of beehive bezels. One is about 11MM tall and the other is about 14MM tall. I suspect that the shorter one is earlier, but does anyone have any idea of when there was a change, if any.

Shorter one was earlier. Thicker one was paired with taller lens; base had single filament bulb.
Anyone with more documented details as to which chassis numbers and for what markets cars with these lights went to?

11mm ones were used on pre-A and A T1 for sure.
