Here are a few pics. The camera flashed. She looks much brighter than she really is in the pics.

If you find the correct license plate and light bracket I have the lens for it.

Thanks Chris. I found an Ohio 1968 plate and bought it.

I am talking about the license plate bracket which also holds the tag light. Yours is not correct.

I guess the police departments had a choice which side the shifter was on.

Is the throttle left to allow using the right hand for tickets and tire markers?

Golly DD!

Duty had to include more than that.

I think it pacified officers used to Indians!

Your 73 is different from my 68 Chris. The pic below is a 1967 Serci-Car Rider handbook. Note the license plate bracket. Also not the radio aerial is mounted on the left side. Mine is mounted in the center. Also...there is no trunk lights on the 67 trunk lid.

Image

The next pic is taken from the 1958-1973 arts book. Note the number 24. That is my license plate bracket.

Image

The next pic is also taken from that same parts book. Noter number 24 in the list. Used onlylate 1967-1968.

My 68 is missing the tag light. Mine is mounted in the box just under the license plate bracket.

I still have not found an original license plate lamp assembly. I did find a cheap temporary one to use though but I have to make an adapter for it because I did not want to change the hole size on the box. Forgive me for the foggy looking pics but you will get an idea of why I went that route and of what I did to adapt the light to my box.

It works well. Will replace it with the real deal when I find one.
