'32 roadster headlights with blinkers

I'd like to get a set of 10" diameter Ford headlights for my '32 roadster. I've heard that someone sells them with the blinkers inside. Does anyone know who makes these?

Yogi's and Speedway Motors has them in their catalogs. There also is a conversion kit for regular headlamps.

Thanks Vince.

I have a Speedway catalog, and knew they sold the regular headlights, but I thought there were some that had the blinker bulbs down at the bottom.

However, on closer inspection, it looks like the '32 headlights that Speedway sells use Halogen bulbs, and they sell the kit you spoke of that has the blinker kind of attached to the headlight bulb socket. I'm guessing the H4 bulb they refer to on the blinker kit is the Halogen bulb their headlights use (I'm a little rusty on my bulb nomenclature).

I think thats the way to go. Thanks!

Your welcome

I was considering them for my 34, but I saw some recently and wasn't impressed with the way the blinkers looked at night. Instead I will be using blinkers mounted on my front frame rails. I will not be using a bumper, but nerf bars.

Cool

I just got a pair of lights with the blinker built in the top of the rim .These might be what your looking for. They come in either chrome or primer buckets. They have a flat lens with a H-4 halogen bulb.I got the chrome ones for my Deuce and was really satisfied with the lights and ther packaging. www.route66hotrodparts.com

Lash, I haven't seen those before. The ones I saw the blinker was actually in the headlamp.

Thanks Lash. I'm going to give them a call and inquire as to whether they are the 7" or 10" variety.

Let us know when you find out. The web site didn't give much information on them.

All of the headlamps that I have seen with blinkers in them have been 10". I haven't decided yet if I am going with the 7" or 10". I am leaning toward the 7" chrome King Bee's.

Well, I talked to the guy over there and he said they measure 8-3/4" in diameter. I'm sure they use the standard 7" glass. They use a standard H4 bulb and regular blinker bulbs.

He couldn't send me a digital photo, but he's sending me a regular photo via snailmail.

I notice that the T bucket on their home page has them, and gives us a little better idea what they look like on a car.

I don't know, though. The style I'm going for is a bit more traditional, and the blinkers inside the housing will help keep the composition more homogeneous.

Here is my site

Cool

Take a look at some of the Peterbilt headlight units, the single round units have a turn signal built into the headlight ring, size of the light is about right and the cost is decent. They can be found at the Peterbilt dealers and the 18 wheeler truck accessory shops
