I am looking for a NOS 1966 Underhood Lamp, part number #986591. Must be complete with clips, etc.

Let me know what you have. Thanks!

Rich

Hey Rich,
I have one or two extas, but the part number is the '67 number. Same lamp, just a different part number.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for this! Actually, the 67 uses a different switch socket that goes in the hood of the lamp than the 66. 66 is on its own in that way in the switch socket is all metal, with a bead at the end to hold the switch inside of it. The 67 switch socket is a all black plastic with a circular retaining ring to hold the two pieces of plastic together. It does use the same attaching bracket with one hole for the screw and a similar hood, but the switch base is different.

Take a look and you can see what I mean...

Best,

Rich

This is what the 66 underhood lamp looks like. It is different than the 67, which has a black plastic socket with a retainer ring. 66 has a metal jacket for the socket switch.

Yeah, shortly after I posted that, I realized that I was thinking engine compartment lamp for some reason?? I know exactly what you are saying about the 66 underhood lamp. I have a few spare used ones but no NOS.

I may have one, that part number seems familiar. I'll check when I get out of the great white north of BC. Minus 9° C today, 3 inches of snow.

Sorry Rich,

I got stuck in the field then had to go to my head office. I will be back home on Saturday for the day and will check.

Cheers,

Sorry Rich, I finally remembered where i had a copy of my parts list (I just got a new computer). Unfortunately, the light I have actually comes back as a 1970 chevelle unit. I'll keep my eye open at the fan belt toss though.
