I've become pretty reluctant to drive the '34 much at night anymore, so I'm probably in a position to sell a spare. I had bought a spare or two years back before the prices went stratospheric (I can remember folks asking $200 and more), and then bought a pair when the Packard Club made the reproductions. I'll take an inventory and see what I might be willing to part with and send you a PM.

For those with an interest and not familiar with the 3003 (and it's cousin 3001) bulb, they were triple filament tilt-beam bulbs used in Solar headlamps, at the height of the depression and only to my knowledge in Packard (1933/34) and Cadillac (1932/33), hence their rarity. The 3003 filaments were rated at 32/32/32 candlepower, and the 3001 and 32/21/21.

Hello Owen:

Actually, the 3003 bulb was not a project of PAC, but rather is was a project of Motor City Packards. Bruce Blevins approached the MCP board with the idea of reproducing the 3003 bulb, but with the requirement being that all net proceeds would go toward the restoration of the Packard Proving Grounds. He needed the board's approval to front the design and manufacturing costs for 1,000 bulbs. The board approved his request.

The bulbs were made and it took several years to sell out production to Packard and Cadillac owners. Bruce's idea resulted in a lot of happy 1933 and 1934 owners and $30,000 was sent to The Packard Proving Grounds.
