Marchal bulbs

Happy New Year everyone.
Would anyone know where to purchase replacement bulbs for Marchal fog light?
Thanks
Joe

Check with NPD, they sell the lights.

That's interesting Marty. I didn't know they sold those. I've looked at some originals for around $1000. Those at NPD look nice. I have thought about changing them over on mine, but never can decide. As a judge, what's your opinion?

Did your car come with the Marchals? If so the NPD ones would be fine as reproduction parts are acceptable in the concours trailered class.

My car is 4/4 production. By Paul's book, before 4/26 were produced with Marchal's. Part of me thinks it's kinda neat cause you dont see it often. Yet it's perfectly fine the way it is. Maybe when I get bored. Lol

Does your CS have the original grill with the Marchal light brackets?

It sure does Neil. What's your thoughts on the different lights Neil. I know you comment a lot on here and know cs's. I'm not completely concours, and probably never will be.
Thanks for your opinion!
Ricky

IIRC, the Marchals were installed on early GT/CS's and then changed to the Lucas lights.
I believe the Lucas lights are correct for ALL CS's due to the factory recall to replace the Marchals on earlier models.
The production date of a CS should determine which light was initially installed.
I'm installing Marchals on my Black CS ($369 @ NPD) simply because I like them and its a rarity.

I like the rarity as well. You may check Mustangs Unlimited, I believe the same Marchals are $299

Neither NDP nor Mustang Unlimited have the bulbs any other leads?
