Hello, I am trying to understand a totally clear 1941 Cadillac lens. I have 7 amber original Cadillac Appleton embossed lens and I also have one lens that is 100% identical to these 7 amber lenses  but this last one is totally clear glass. Never before have I seen such a lens.  Anybody  know anything about this clear lens ?   Thank you      member #23389    Mike Patla

Mike,

The lenses were available in amber, clear, and red according to the MPL.  I would imagine the red ones were for ambulances.  Perhaps the clear ones were for the overseas markets?

HTH,
Jeff

You had your choice of amber or clear. I've seen one car (in a junk yard) in the late 60s with them. I took them off and on his next visit to my house, Art Iles said, "Those are mine," and snatched them up.
