1953-1954 Chevy Backup Light Socket (dual contact)
Listed here is a light socket for the 1953 and 1954 Chevy Backup Lights
The original light socked for this backup light system used by GM in 1953 and 1954 Chevy’s was 1 1/2 inch in size. No one is making a 1 1/2 inch socket today that I am aware of. In that I have been selling parts for these cars since 2001 I have found that some of the sockets used in this application were one piece sockets and some were made just like these. That is a smaller size socket utilizing an adapter to make it 1 1/2 inch in size.
These socket/adapter units work very well and can be made with either single contact sockets, as the original backup lamp socket was. Or they can be made with dual contact sockets for those people who do not want a backup light but would rather use the socket for a brake light.
