I found a Trippe Speed Light in my barn in excellent condition with the brackket. Is there a way to sell this item for its real value? corey12@verizon.net

Hi Richard, I'm sure you can sell your light but I have no idea how to go about it. I don't know anything about antique cars; I just took this photo at a car show. If I were you I'd find an antique car club and ask them.

good luck!

I realize that this is an old spread but am interested in finding out if you still have the light and/or what you did with it.

I would love to buy this light if you still have it please e-mail if you do.

Thanks,
Shawn

I have two speedlamps with brackets in excellent condition. I don't think you can find a better pair outside of Pebble Beach. They are that fine. One might have a little blurred area the size of a quarter. I bought them for my Pierce and forgot to install them. The Pierce is long gone and I just found them yesterday. If anyone is interested send me an email.

I have a pair of Trippe speedlights I found in an old garage 30 yrs ago or more. They are in super great condition....bottom half of "clampon" bracket missing but would be simple to fabricate. Any reasonable offer considered.

Can anyone tell me what a set of the Trippe Safety Lights (original) are worth? What are they selling for?

Posted by: Sandra Bothwell at October 9, 2011 11:37 AM  

I have a pair of Trippe lights. I am looking for more information on them. They are approximately 8-10 inches in diameter.

On the metal plate it indicates the serial numbers: 77279 and 77224. Lenses on both are a little cloudy, but there are no cracks or chips. Metal casing tarnished, but no dents, cracks or chips in either.
