They look like they had a metal cage securing them to the bucket. Not 70 Chevy PU.

Could these be from aftermarket fog lights? The gasket looks right and thats the only type that uses a cage that I can think of.

I don't know, I am clueless on why I have them! That is what blows me away, what in the heck project was this that I got them for??????

I will take another look at them and see if there is something on them.

The two that come to mind are Lamborghini and Fiat. Could the third one be Peugoet? I know they built everything from salt and pepper grinders to cars and motorcycles, I don't know about tractors or helicopters.....

Well Lamborghini is one of the companies I was looking for although Fiat certainly built tractors. Peugeot I don't know about. I researched it , saw reference to tractor but after reading and looking I could never find one although I did find a Massey-Ferguson with a Peugeot engine installed.
I'll except Fiat but there are still two other companies I'm looking for. And what about that helicopter?

Only other one's I can think of are Mercedes benz and Rolls Royce that may have been tired to tractors or helicopters. I know both built aero engines, and Mercedes built the Unimog that had a PTO and 3 point hitch like a tractor? Im out of guesses, hopefully someone will jump in that knows the answer, I usually do pretty well with tractor questions lol

Well Kelly when I asked this question I had a couple of other companies in mind but you've come up with some I didn't know about! The three companies I was looking for were Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Porsche! All make or made ag equipment.
Interestly Ferruccio Lamborghini got into the car business because after complaining about his Ferrari, Enzo said "If you can do better than do it!"
Ferruccio took him up on it in a big way. Enzo referred to Lambo's as "tractors" In the mid seventies Ferrari decided to branch out into tractors and such not only to make money but to thumb their noses at Lamborghini!
Ah you gotta love those Italians! Meanwhile Fiat is pumping out units all over the world.
Benz was building tractors long before the merged to become Mercedes-Benz.
" Ferdi" Porsche designed his first tractor while he was working on the first V-Dub. Who knew? Back in the thirties.
Rolls-Royce never built tractors but hey did supply engines to the Vickers. The same Vickers that built airplanes.
And how did the automobile greats in the good old USA do ? Ford. That's it. Ford

BB

Kelly it's all yours!!

Oh yeah. Who built the helicopter? Lamborghini! They built one and the Italian equivalent of the FAA wasn't impressed so the abandoned the project.
