This has turned into my general auto-aquisition thread so here is the latest 'bay oddity(?), well l haven't seen one before anyway:
The yellow seems to be illuminated in all three functions. The Pass/dipped & Drive/full elements operate as expected but the Yellow/fog contact switches them off & cuts out most of the white light so the yellow is prominent.
I'm assuming there are three contacts so there must be three elements, one higher in the yellow shade to operate the fog function:
It's a 5 3/4" unit so l will fit it to Bruiser 2 eventually with an extra switch & a relay or two to control it. I suppose it may fall foul of some rule or another (three dipped lights or fit a fourth too/one yellow?) but it's not an imminent question until maybe next year. It is of course, sealed beam which throws up the probability of element failure at some point. I've had a quick search but haven't seen any others like this, just those with yellow lenses. Still, it's a good thing, maybe French or French market perhaps, as 'Foreign' usually denoted Japanese manufacture in the post-war years & l'm happy to have picked it up. I did check it was fully functional before l bought it for thirteen of your finest (as Henry would say) & fortunately it survived the journey to me.
I suspect someone here must have seen them before.
And liking a bit of automobilia, l bought another oil dispenser too:
