Upgrading 60'-72'GM Pickups with LEDs*
* requires electronic flasher
In the never-ending quest to improve and update our classic trucks, the subject of lighting is one area often overlooked by most people. Many of us are looking for ways to improve the functionality of our pickups without compromising the looks.
LED's, (light-emitting diodes) are a revolutionary form of lighting that can do just that. LED's use solid-state semiconductors that emit visible light when an electrical current passes through it and excites the photons. This technology is currently used in traffic lights, scoreboards, message centers, and in the semi-truck and trailer market, and the benefits over incandescent bulbs are numerous. LED's are vibration resistant, use less power, and illuminate faster--- producing very little heat.
Early Classic Enterprises now offers custom LED inserts for the '60-'72 GM trucks that replace the original light bulbs with a patented plug in design. These inserts can literally be installed in seconds using only a screwdriver to remove and re-install the lens.
In addition to the taillight inserts, ECE also offers a third brake light insert for the '69-'72 trucks with a factory cargo light. By simply running a single wire to the brake light switch under the dash, you can now have an LED cargo light and third brake light to update your classic ride.
Follow along and we'll show you just how simple it is to install better lights in a '72 Chevy pickup.
