Default Re: Headlight lenses

A good friend of mine is the one that had the lens made, he lives in Escalon, CA.

I am the one that was selling the lens, only had 25 sets. Sorry I do not have any more for sale. Only kept one in case one of mine get broke. These lens were cast in 1953, and the mold cost was $1,000.00, the work was done in the LA area. According to Al Lepore, prior to his passing, told me a mold today would cost about $10,000.00 . Not likely any one will spend that kind of money as the demand is not there.

Good morning, Ron,
Remember "PLASTI-CAST"?---Well, I tried to make extra tail light lenses for a '36 Lincoln Model-K. Turned out like CRAP!!--LOL
