Default Which car is this light glass from ?

Is this light glass from a 400 ?
It doesn't match the 401/403/early 405 type, or the later 405 type.
Thanks
Joe

Joe,
I have never seen a light lens like this on a 400 .
Attached is a photo of a standard 400 roof light which are fitted to the later Bristols

Thanks for the replies. Geoff that 400 light is indeed similar to the early 405 type, picture attached.

Default 400 glass

It's definitely a 400 interior light. Possibly later models too?

Stefan,
I have never seen a light lens or photo of one, like the one JoeF is asking about on a 400.
Pls post a photo of one fitted to a 400

Maybe the prototypes or very early production 400(which I have not seen) were fitted with that lens.
Does you 400/164 have this type fitted?
Tks
Geoff

Here's a photo of two for comparison. The stepped one on the right is from 405 chassis 4049. The one on the left is the mystery. There is also a third type, in a separate picture, which is from a later 405 and has curved sides.

Hi Joe,

The light looks the same as what's in my 406.

Let me know if you'd be happy for it to go to a new home.

Thanks,

Andrew
