The 6V sealed beams you are talking about could be of WAGNER brand.

Cheers
So are those lights of any use, and are they suitable for the jeeps.

By all means, Yes!
In fact any other sealed beam will do.
Just make sure they are not single point bulbs, i.e. they have two filaments for low and high beam.

As I said earlier, originals are very rare and since majority of the jeep owners have switched
to 12V electricals, the C-B Seelite bulbs won't work either, unless coupled with a voltage reducer.
In fact, replica beams identical to the originals down to the markings are available in both 6V and 12V
for the avid enthusiast who wants perfection to the last detail.


Cheers

We seem to be lucky in Australia with many genuine parts for our older and classic vehicles.
I buy all my MB parts in Australia from a specialist who ships world wide. Genuine MB or from MB supplier.

The same with my VW parts- all parts available for most Beetles or Kombis-many original VW or wx South Africa, USA, Mexico or Brazil.
I can post URLs of suppliers if that is OK

There were two models of the Fiat 1100 (millecento) in 56 which one are you talking about the Elegant or the Egg type? Also are you looking for lenses or whole assembly?

Just an idea- why not one of our tbhpian friends who own millecentos (gogi, karl et al) get a pair fabricated in aluminium from their original and send it to you? Else you could request one of your FCBians who also own a millecento to lend you and you could do the same?

Yeah, if I do not get it the plan is to digitise it complete with part no. and Fiat/ PA logo. I am also looking for tail lights for my car, if not I have to get them made the same way.
