Well, just damn. My memory failed me yet again. Glad I can still remember how to walk, albeit at a slower pace and in a somewhat staggering pattern. LOL

Here's Henrys', and the story. And thanks for asking to see the photos. Henry's will never be restored, as the story tells the reason. There's a lube sticker on the door that I couldn't upload the pic. In 1968, it had 6,888 miles. Now....7,400.

Finally. The right bulbs to get. And a great tip on making that 6v bulb a little brighter. White paint and or cupcake foil! Thanks all.

hey Henry Carl, you shouldn't need to paint inside of tail light buckets if you use cupcake foils because the foils totally surround the bulb. Tom.

Thank you for the pictures, That is in amazing shape for 86 years old!
I can see why you don’t want to change anything.
I needed some inspiration to get busy on mine.
