Marchals with Yellow Lenses?

I found this on eBay:

It's a set of Marchals, but they have yellow lenses. Does anyone know why they would have yellow lenses?

Re:Marchals with Yellow Lenses?

The Marchal lights where used on other cars before they where picked for the Shelby & GT/CS. Those cars used them for many different applications, I believe the yellow lenses where used for driving/racing in fog. What ever the reason, they are incorrect for the GT/CS, but the housings are still correct if they are the 656's. You will also see clear lenses with yellow bulbs.

Thanks. I emailed the guy and he said that they might've been put on since the lights were too bright.

European vehicles often came standard with yellow lenses. Marchal was a very popular manufacturer of lights in the 50's thru the 70's in Europe.

Be sure they are the 656 as the 653 (the model prior) will have a part number on the eyebrow which is incorrect.

Good luck.
