Here we have a gorgeous and ULTRA RARE vintage original 1950s all metal chromed (rally) map reading lamp in EXCELLENT original refurbished condition! Marked AJH 7 PAT.S, this ‘flexilight’ brand was made in Sweden. The item was taken apart, cleaned and polished in our workshop. You will only find slight traces of use, see pictures.
This type of map reading lamp was sold in the 1950s and it was used in touring cars of European makes and in rally competition cars. This lamp originates from an early 1950s Volvo PV rally car.
The rugged cast metal base (with on / off switch) can be mounted to or below the dashboard or with two screws / bolts. The flexible chromed metal ‘goose neck’ works and fixates perfectly and it measures 57 cm (22.5-inch). The metal lamp-hood features an amber coloured lens. This is an ultra rare 60+ years vintage original item in excellent original condition! “Enjoy the Ride!”
