Well its been a while since I posted but I decided to sell a few things I don't want to hang onto anymore. I prefer to start here over ebay. This is the first item. If you have a question just ask. Pair of NOS 65-69 LM headlight bezels. They are in excellent shape. No dents but they do have a some very minor box marks. Take a good look at the pics. One comes in the original box. $225 includes shipping to any relatively normal destination. Email/PM I will get back to you ASAP. Thanks

I don't see the drain bump, which would make them early 65 stampings.

The name is self-explanatory, but I was unaware of such a thing until now.
I have never noticed it on any of my lates.
Just exactly where is this "Drain Bump"?

It isn't a drain bump, but there is a outward bump at the bottom of the 1965 front headlamp bezels that was put there to accommodate the head of a headlamp assembly mounting stud. I have some NOS ones, and will dig one out tomorrow, and post a picture.

There is actually a drain bump on the later bezels that is not on the 65 ones, it was put there to drain water out of the buckets so they do not fill with water and rust, there is also a drain that leads to the bump in the later headlight bucket headlight mounting plates as well. The bezels pictured are 65 style with no drain. if you look at the pic I posted you can see the drain bump at the bottom next to the outer lamp.

Hmmmmmmm !
I did not remember ever seeing such a thing, so I just went outside and looked at the '67 Vert.
Mine are perfectly smooth across the bottom, no bump.
They also do not have those painted black lines on them.
I will have to check the '66 tomorrow and see what those ones are like.

I have never heard of them being drains, since the headlamp door (bezel) doesn't fit that tightly against the headlamp assembly that it would need a drain to prevent water from accumulating in the headlamp assembly.

FWIW, that's not a GM bezel, but a aftermarket replacement packaged to look similar to the Delco/GM packaging.

It came from the same machine that stamped them for GM, however, the quality isn't quite the same finish wise. It was common that parts that didn't pass quality control would be repackaged, and sold as aftermarket parts back in the 1960's. On some of the parts, you had to look long and hard to find the flaw that the inspectors saw, and sometimes you never could find it. GM never produced (or had produced for them) show car quality parts, however, they did have a high standard of quality that dictated some parts being rejected for defects. They also had multiple suppliers for the same part, and that is where some of the differences that we see come into play.
The price on this pair is fair and they appear to be of good quality.
