They are 1 1/4” long and like new. This mail order parts company from Ohio was started in the ‘50’s and reached its zenith in the ‘70’s. Under pressure from Summit Racing and others, the owner sold out in the early ‘80’s. Pins located in Iowa. $10.00 each shipped. All pins SOLD!

    Yeh I’ve never seen one before, but do remember seeing their ads in hot rod magazines. Cool! I found them in an AC Guide Minature Lamp Bulb cabinet I bought in IL east of Keokuk, IA.
