Many owners have difficulty in identifying the correct headlight lenses for their vehicles since descriptions or dimensions are not often given in sales literature or parts books. It is not sufficient to specify only the brand name when ordering Lenses the size must be given as some manufacturers made 15 or 20 different sizes in the same basic pattern.
In this issue we present detailed data, descriptions, and dimensions of all headlight lenses in popular usage during 1929-1937.
Most states had strict regulations (they still do) concerning the type of lenses, the intensity of illumination, and the aiming of beams. In most cases, lenses were legal only, when used in headlamps for which they were designed. The flutes and prisms in lenses are not purely decorative; they are for the purpose of properly directing light beams from the lamps and reflectors for which the lenses were designed. Lens manufacturers almost invariably put a prominent trademark on their products which was primarily to enable officials to determine the legality of the lens.
Nearly all lenses have a carefully designed system of vertical flutes which spreads the light horizontally to illuminate the edges of the road, and a series of horizontal prisms which prevent any rays from projecting upward and causing glare. More often than not, no distinction was made between right and left lenses they were identical. A few manufacturers, however, thought that a different pattern of light distribution was called for and supplied right and left side lenses of different design (an added headache for the restorer trying to locate hard-to-find lenses).

POSITION OF NOTCHES

The figures shown under "Position of Notches" on the pages to follow indicate the position in degrees and the number of notches on a lens.
Position of notch is expressed in degrees preceding clockwise from top center, facing lens. "0" indicates only one notch at top center of lens. "90-180" means two notches, one at 90 degrees, the other at 180 degrees, etc. This is a very important factor when searching for lens's, as it may look the same, but it may not fit the headlamp.
