Here we have a pair of RARE early 1970s vintage original CIBIÉ 45 Iode lamps for all European made cars of the period. This pair features yellow lenses so they will be a perfect fit with French cars or other European cars which were sold new in France. This pair of lamps is fully refurbished; Taken apart, cleaned, polished and tested. These 45 years+ old lamps are in very good to excellent original condition! The lenses and reflectors are in perfect condition, the Stainless-Steel housing of the fog lamp is near perfect, the spot lamp housing looks perfect but on close inspection you will find a ‘pin prick’ dent just above the centre and a slight liniar dent near the base. These minor imperfections will not show when the lamps are mounted on your car. These rare Cibié Iode lamps are quite big and very slim. The lamps measure 17 cm (just under 7 inch) in diameter and the lamps are only about 4 cm (1,6 inch!) deep. Technical: 12 Volt 55 Watt H1 Halogen. These vintage original and very hard to find 45+ years old lamps are ready to fit to your beloved classic car! “Enjoy the Ride!”
We are STRONG advocates of long-range spot-lamps! Why? On any road-trip with your classic car in Europe you will find yourself in the pitch dark after sundown in rural areas. Especially on the winding roads of Great Britain, France, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and East European countries. You will find that your standard lamps (unless extra Halogen spot lamps were factory fitted) are very inadequate in lighting the road and dangers ahead. Be prepared and add a SEA of light to your classic!
The Spot / Fog combination is also very versatile: The powerful halogen spot-lamp works in combination with the standard beam lamps of your car (usually quite weak non halogen driving lamps on classic cars). The separately switched wide-beam halogen fog lamp lights the verge and the inside of road-bends.
