Default Gas head light assembly...

One other item I would like to know more about is this gas light marked Victor Lamp Co. CINTI-O model-2. Did not see this in any of the catalogs so any input would be great.

It is a Victor tail lamp for 1913-1914 Model T. Lamps for model T's were made by Victor, Jno Brown, E&J.

Kerosene not gas. Been converted to electric house light.

It is missing the font. The font is a little round tank that contains kerosene and an adjustable wick. It hooks into little slots in the bottom of the light with a slight twist.

Thanks for the input fella's. I will probably keep it for a conversation piece, now that I know a little more about it.

Victor is the rarest lamp used in 1813 - 14. That lamp is from 1913. The fount is quite hard to find without buying another entire lamp.
