There are usually several Fulton visors up for auction on Ebay at any given time.

I found an old visor at a swap meet. $35, I think. I had to make my own brackets, no big deal...slim

I always wondered if you could still see the stop lights when you pull up with one of those visors on there. I like the look but I have to admit I've never ridden in one & I would be worried about craning my neck all over to see the dang lights.

For seeing the traffic lights, get a traffic light viewer. They work great! I have a Fulton visor on my 46 Coupe and the viewer has saved my neck from straining.

I already need one since I'm 6'4" and aready can't see the lights when I'm at a light... And that's without a chop top or a visor...

I don't even notice the visor when i'm driving. Have no trouble with redlights. Back in the day redlights were small and not as bright.
