Is there a "correct" 3A headlight from the factory. Ours has one old auto lite bulls eye headlight and one GE?

Thanks Tom

The "bulls eye" bulbs show up most commonly on original unrestored CJ-3As.

Per "The Civilian Jeep- Model CJ-3A" written by Bob Westerman, originals might be Corcoran-Brown, but other companies may have also supplied the headlights for the 3A.

Edit...You're Killing me Bob!  I need an updated version!

Corcoran-Brown and Auto-lite are closely related.

In 1934 Electric Auto-Lite purchased the Corcoran-Brown Lamp Company and it operated as a division of Auto-Lite.

This 3A was very original so I think the auto lite bullseye is original. I posted it in the watned section as well but anyone have a bullseye bulb working or not?

Thanks Tom

Without going back to see what the source is for this information - I'm thinking the headlight assembly (bucket etc) was made by Corcoran-Brown using a Auto-Lite bulbs.

I guess, Lucas would do as well.
  

Why didn't they build them with a decent diesel engine?
