Park lights

So the lights in the grille on my 50 F3 are strictly park lights and not directional lights? Is that why you see some with lights mounted on top of the fenders?

Yes, that is correct.

So are they easy to convert so that you have both? I just received my new sockets from LMC but they don't look like they will house 1157 bulbs.

Do a search here there have been lots of people that have done the swap to make it house the 1157 bulb.

If what you received was a stock replacement socket, then no, an 1157 will not fit in it. You have to replace the socket with a larger one made for the dual filament 1157 bulb.

I posted my solution to this on 2/13/11, search for F1 parking lights. I'd link the thread here, but I don't know how to do that. NAPA part # LS6252 socket is what I used. Converts our light to 1157 bulbs. Where in Colorado Springs do you live?

I have a 52 & the park lamp housings were shot...so I bought new assemblies from Sacramento Vintage....the units for the 48-50 with sockets for a two filiment bulb are $16.00. What you get depends on whether you have an early 50 or a late 50. The parts for the later model are $90 for a pair.

If my housings had been better I would've used the Napa sockets.

I have a pair of new buckets, no sockets, for a 48-50. Are they worth $10?

You can get those sockets at the NAPA on academy and austin bluffs. Ask for Dusty, he's the assistant manager there. He's a member of the Stockers Car Club, as am I. We'll have a show/cruise saturday night, 8/20, at the Garden of the Gods visitor center. 4:00 until 8:00. Free to attend and participate. Find me at the blue awning in the middle of the lot, near my white F1. I'll have a white shirt with my name on it. -Rusty

Ok, I will try to swing by. I am climbing Mt Elbert that morning and also have a high school football game to attend as well. Did you have your seat reupholstered and if so, who did you take it to locally?

Haven't done the seat yet, probably the next thing on the list. It's not very comfy to sit on at this point.
