Hella Lamps
« on: January 08, 2017, 02:14:32 PM »
I am trying to identify this specific Hella lamp. They were added to meet U.S. import requirements on my '52 170Da OTP. They look like something you would find on a VW bug of the late 50's/early 60's. Stephen

Or maybe DKW.

Those look close but appear wider. I'm going to ask the seller for more views. Stephen

These are definitely VW turn signal lights!  1950's - 1960's
There was a pair on my 170Db when I bought it in Germany in 1971.
