1926 Star Headlamps


I have a 1926 Star Model R Coach. The headlights currently on the car are bullet shaped and are all chrome. The say Parabeam Headlamp on them. They measure roughly 9.5" wide and the lenses should be around 8.25" or so. Are these original or should the car have drumstyle lights? Does anyone have lenses for these or if the lights are not correct, the correct style lights. Thanks again for the help.

Hi Swen....

Look at my 26 roadster and touring car in the photographs section. The roadster is late 26 and has the bullet headlamps, the touring is early and has the drum headlights.

I also have a 27 coach and will check it out this week end.

I don't think the headlights were all chrome except on some of the deluxe models. Will check in the parts book and email you some of the pages that list and show headlamps
