6 volt bulbs

A friend gave me a cool old driving light....I'm thinking about mounting it on my F-1.
My question is, what is the brightest single filament small bulb made? This is a bulb like you would use in a tail light. It currently has a #87 bulb which is fairly bright, just wondering if some other type bulb exists. An LED bulb won't fit in the housing.....

Thanks.
The spark plug is for size comparison...

Smitty49 is starting off with a positive reputation.
The # 87 has a BA15s base same as a 1156. You might check this site at the reference and tech section and see if there's something you can use differently-
