Bright-Eyed ‘40 – See and be Seen With United Pacific Industries’ 1940–41 Ford LED Parking Lights

May 20th, 2010

There has been quite a lot of talk about the effectiveness and increased visibility provided by modern light emitting diode, or LED, taillights in street rods, but that is only half the story. The superior brightness of LEDs is also being applied to the front of those relics in an increased effort to provide optimum visibility during both day and night operation. Carson, California’s United Pacific Industries, manufacturers of LED lighting products for both street rods and muscle cars, has just introduced their amber LED turn signal light, which is a direct-fit replacement for the front signals for the 1940 Ford Deluxe coupe and sedan, as well as the 1940-41 Ford light duty pickups. The company also offers a bunch of other popular applications, but you’ll have to check out its Web site for a rundown of those.

UPI’s epoxy-coated, fully sealed and waterproof 21 amber LED turn signal lights feature solid state circuit boards designed to fit the original 1940-41 Ford headlight doors and operate at between 9–14 volts, which is more than sufficient lighting power for conventional 12-volt street rod electrical systems. These LEDs feature a total of three wires. First, there is the red wire that powers the turn signals. Next, there is the black wire that powers the parking lights, and lastly there is the white wire, which is the ground.
Here’s more good news, UPI’s 1940-41 Ford amber signals are designed to interface with modern OE and aftermarket street rod wiring harnesses. So, if you have a harness from Painless Performance, Ron Francis, the Wireworks, or the like, the UPI’s turn signals will wire right into the existing harness. The only problem you may run into is with the factory-style flasher unit itself. Oftentimes, it will misread the LED as a burned out bulb and won’t function properly. To avoid this, simply replace the factory-style flasher with a UPI LED turn signal flasher (two-terminal P/N 90650, three-terminal P/N 90651).
Follow along as we show the proper installation of these parking lights on Hawaii Classic Car Cruisers member Tony Rodriguez. He’ll be upgrading the parking light lenses on his wife Paula’s Moon Yellow 1940 Ford Deluxe coupe to highly visible LEDs.
