Underhood service light

Recommended Posts

I don't think any of the USA spec 510's had the engine compartment light, unless perhaps it was offered as a dealer option.  However, I too have a 1969 510 with one in the engine compartment, but it also has a map light on the passenger inner A pillar, so I always assumed somebody installed the engine compartment light!  All of the Z cars came with the lights.

 

Is your lamp kinda oval shaped with a twist off end that holds the lamp & plastic domed lens?  If so, that is the same as the Z car.  Sorry, I don't host & post pics like Ratsun requires!

Option on the 521 and 620. Different number for the 510, 240, 260 280z, 280zx and 720. Different number again on the Patrol

This is where that lamp was installed on my 1969 510.  It had 2 crude self tapping holes & a crude homemade wire coming off fuse box, so somebody simply installed it.......

 

Wow!  This new pic posting is GREAT!!! 😎

410 and 411 also have similar / same lamp assembly.

By Bluebird, do you mean a JDM spec car?  (I see the fender mirror stalk!)  That might have been factory for JDM, but I've never seen a lamp in a USA spec 510 that LOOKED like it came from the factory, only that looked like it was added later, either dealer added or over the counter customer added...............?  The location & wiring is what I have questioned before on USA spec cars...........
