    Keep in mind there are both black painted and chrome Hall 701 lights. Many CJs, thrucks and some wagons used the painted version. The Tuxes and '63/'64 wagons used the chrome versions.
    I assume you are looking for chrome?

    There was a black set on Ebay last week that was advertised as NOS. IIRC they were asking around $700.

    For that price why isn't the market flooded with reproductions?

    The ones I took off my Jeep were bashed pretty badly. I bought a pair of reproductions from Walcks that are a very close match to originals. They are the painted version. Not original, but close enough for my purposes and they are good quality.

    The Tux version lights don't have the window for the license light. If that was the correct version, I would think about the $24 price. Thats one with the deep stamped logo that shows after chroming.
    The Walcks lights are a close replica, but I've bought them for less than half the price from the source in the Philippines.
    They are on eBay.

    Those have been listed multiple times at $300 with no bidders. I'd have to think hard about that price if they were chrome.

    I bought the same ones from Walck’s and used them for a few years until I was able to buy a chrome set from a member. The Walck’s are the same size, but have no stamping on the housing. I have heard of people getting them chromed.

    This is why I took the chrome ones off my tux that is going rock crawling, and bought the Walcks ones. I really think chroming the repops would be pretty close. There are much better things to spend your money and time on, IMO. I assume you are not going to be judged at a show. And, best part...gives you something to watch for after it's all done and you're bored.

    Been tracking down parts for over 6 years now. The good news, the Tux parts do eventually show up

    I have a 1941 Dodge command car that's been done for years, but I enjoy looking for parts and accessories at the military swap meet. There was stuff for the radios that I figured I would never find, I eventually got leads on stuff, and am still finding.

    I have a set I bought from here. They are not bent, but the chrome is peeling off need to be re chromed. I have them apart, took the studs and light plastics out, one of the clear liners is a little damaged, but I will trade you if that is what you want. They can be made nice again. Call me at 734 776 7659, and I will text you pictures. The hall stamping is good, let me know, my Tux is a clone so I will give them up if you want them, Rick

    That's awesome Rick I will text you. Hopefully I have something you could use.

    And no this Jeep will never be in a car show and will never be judged. I'm just trying to put it back together "correctly" for the pure jigsaw puzzle satisfaction of it.
