That might work, but I have never seen one like it. Should look more like this. You can get them as reproductions, but most of them have junk ballast resistors.

I used the later circuit breaker and resistor on my 38 Ford - fuses are not appealing for use on headlights

Agree with Bill, if you are not going for 100% original I would use the later circuit breaker panel. This one actually has two circuit breakers inside the cover. The second panel has only one circuit breaker, think it was 1940 only. Starting in 1941 Ford used the two circuit breaker panel.

Just be sure you get an original ballast resistor if at all possible.

No, but I would check with the guys that sell NOS and see what they have or where they suggest you might look.

barnfind08 is one & Michael at third Generation is another. Barnfind08 you can PM with the question on a part and Michael it is best to call 844-317-5988

JSeery I found one on ebay that's NOS. Ordered it before I saw your reply. Thanks for the info. It's a 33 to 40 single circuit breaker and ballast resistor.

LOL, Ford didn't start using them until 1940. But they would work on earlier years, just only correct for 40.
