Frank,
Not the notek lights I remember from my youth, which I think was a normal round spotlight but an extended blue cone in the centre of the lense.
I'll look for an old advert for them.

Frank's example was the one I had in mind. They were fitted to just about every German vehicle. They also had an ingenious rear light with three lens. Can't remember exactly how they worked now but by keeping certain colours lined up in convoy at night you were spaced correctly.

I didn't know what it was either , so thanks for educating me !

Not sure it is one of those because the mountings look different

Simon, I chose that picture because the light is mounted on a bracket with four holes arranged in an oblong. I reasoned that the central hole of your five might have been from something else at a different time. However Noteks don't commonly seem to appear on commandeered civilian cars and where they do they seem to be mounted rather further forward.

We had to follow the vehicle in front by watching the white ring painted on the rear duff,
Nothing sophisticated to judge distance and spacing except Mk 1 eyeball!

Notek black-out light? Not only on Aprilia's but also on this Augusta. Picture taken 1942, my parents standing by the car.

The fifth hole on the Aprilia wing would have been for the electrical wire.

That's a great photo. Which country was it taken in? I always thought the lights were military only. Didn't realise they could be used on civilian vehicles but I suppose it makes sense. All vehicles had black out covers in the UK for instance.

This picture was taken in Switzerland. Switzerland had black out's during war time. The petrol was rationed. Therefore a limited number of people were driving cars, like doctors etc.
The car on the picture probably belonged to a customer of the Grand Garage Capitol associated to Baumberger & Forster, Lancia representative in Zurich. My father was head of the repair shop. The number plate ZH 315 was the dealer plate of the garage. I assume my father did a "test drive"

That's a very good point Karl. A Notek blackout light gets to sound ever more probable.

Quick update

Body nearly ready for final prep and paint. All welding completed, including the removal of old repairs to make them more acceptable ! More aesthetic than anything else

Door hinges replaced and doors refitted. The new, unworn hinges changed the door fit - I presume previous repairs had been done to rectify door drop with bent/worn pins in place. One hinge was broken as well. But all fits beautifully again

Still undecided on colour, but going away from 2-tone red/black .....

Dark blue like your wine label? I can't think of any car or type of car it doesn't suit.
