While putting headlights and buckets back in the grille after a repaint I noticed the one of the headlights had a FOMOCO emblem on it.Could this be a original headlight? On the back it is stamped :

TUNG-SOL-CANADA
12V
4002
SEA H68
L8



My other question is if it is original would this be needed for a concourse restoration or do they just use repo's?

Most likely they are original or an early replacement part. I have a few on my car and I know they're original.

Not sure regarding the concourse restoration, but I believe original beats repros 9 of 10 times unless the repros are produced as concourse correct...

Originals are worth money to the concours crowd (and yes, concours judging checks for them being original and/or original style repro).

I excitedly checked all of my original ones when I found this out (with $$ signs in my eyes) but found most/all were NG or terminals falling off, etc...
