    Could someone provide the correct bulb number for the deluxe door courtesy lights for a 67/68? I took out mine to buy some extras and there are two different numbers:

    62-025/9? L6278

    and

    W1178

    I'm not sure if either of these bulbs work, the lamp housings are not installed yet.

    Thanks!

    The YearOne catalog lists Y1004 as the replacement bulb # for 1967-70 door courtesy light. Hope this helps

    Alot of part numbers have been superceded/replaced with different numbers now. Usually the only difference may be the candlepower (brightness) of the bulb. I ran into this with my hood mounted signal lights. Your parts store should have a book that interchanges your number with the new part numbers.

    Use whatever bulb that you want to, as long as it fits the base/socket right and makes a good connection. Like 68GEETEE said the only diff. will be the brightness of the bulb. For example im using 6 volt GE 44 bulbs in the hood turn signal flashers, and they are much brighter than the 12 volt bulb, and i like it better that way.
