How cool are these? I actually had no idea what the hell they were when I found them, as my military vehicle familiarity was poor, but I knew they were valuable. Autolites...hmm. Kennedy later enlightened me to the fact these were military convoy lights, better known as blackout lights. These were used during night maneuvers so that airplanes could not see them on the ground, but they were bright enough for the driver in back of you to keep his bumper out of your tailgate when in the convoy. When I lifted the lids to the storage bins below the fold-up rear cots, I found the last owner had left even more cool stuff buried for someone else's resurrection one day. The original gauge cluster, intact with glass in the gauges, was lying next to three headlights and the steering-column dash valence. These are just more parts that made the option of cutting it all up even harder. A restoration was looking like the right thing to do, but, unfortunately, what I need to build for this Cheap Truck Challenge was a 'wheeler, not a hauler.
