Dear all, please do you know a source for this kind of dashboard light socket holder? Used in Packard Super Clipper 47 for oilpressure, temperature lighting . I guess their will be a more common populare source for this parts then Packard. Maybe Ford, MOPAR or GM from this old times? Thank you very much in advance. Best regards Josef

RI Wiringhttp://www.riwire.com (click the SUPPLIES button) and YnZhttps://www.store.ynzyesterdaysparts.com/light-sockets.html both offer bare sockets. RI wiring also has the springs, fiber discs, and bare contacts available separately. You will need to measure your old setup as the sockets have different configurations and are available to fit different diameter dash holes..

Been a few years since I ordered from either place but at the time both offered excellent service. YnZ did have a minimum charge so if you need something else like bulbs or wire it might be good to get it at the same time to save having to pay the extra. I do not know if that minimum charge is still in effect though..

You may also be able to find a universal dash light socket in a parts store but those usually come wired with a smaller gauge modern wire and would require a splice or gutting to connect to original wiring.

That looks very like the instrument panel light sockets on my early to mid 60's Fords.
