Reply To: Non fender mounted headlights on 1932


We’ve discussed the bracket headlights before on this forum.  It was a factory option, then, as now, there were people who didn’t like the fender mounted “frog eye” look.  One has to go back in time and think, when people have seen every other car for years with bracket headlights, that a fender mounted light would, then, take some “getting used to”.

Research has never found any regulation that made fender mounted lights illegal, and the consensus was that is just an oft-told tale that sounds true because it’s been repeated so many times, when in fact it is NOT true.
