RARE Vintage Original 1950s / 1960s Black HELPHOS Search Lamp “Das Auto Auge” With Windscreen Suction Mount – NEW IN BOX!

Here we have a fantastic 1950s / 1960s HELPHOS search lamp / light with windscreen suction mount in, never used, brand new condition! This is the rare black version (most models had a cream white housing). In German the Helphos was named “Das Auto Auge” (The Car Eye) and it was very popular amongst international rally drivers of the period. The Helphos search lamp is mounted to the windscreen with a special suction device which also contains the lense of the lamp. The light beam can be directed in any direction by moving the rear grip on the lamp housing. The on / off switch is neatly placed within ‘thumbs reach’ at the top of the grip. The lamp features a 100 centimetres long wire with a 1960s Hella 12V plug at the end. The diameter of the lamp is 12 centimetres and it is also 12 centimetres high. The original box measures 14 x 14 x 15 centimetres. This about 60 years old Helphos search lamp is in BRAND NEW never used condition in its original box. The suction cup was still in very good and soft condition. We have given the rubber a ‘rejuvenating’ glycerin bath and now the rubber is preserved with talcum power. The lamp and the suction cup were tested; everything worked fine. It is advised to apply some glycerine or vaseline on the suction cup before mounting it on the windshield of your car. This is a highly desirable and very convenient accessory which will become handy in dark conditions during any historic rally or any road trip. “Enjoy the Ride!”

The Helphos search lamp is mounted to the windscreen with a special suction device which also contains the lense of the lamp. The light beam can be directed in any direction by moving the rear grip on the lamp housing. A GREAT period accessory!
