Unfortunately, the lighting utilized in your hot rod or classic cruiser might not be an aspect of your ride that you put much thought into. But believe me when I say, you should. If you do any driving at night, being seen by others on the road and being able to see is quite important. That said, the factory lighting in many classics is not on par with current vehicles, and that can cause a safety issue. Luckily, the folks at United Pacific Industries (UPI) want to help you increase the visibility of your hot rod.
I recently found out that UPI announced the release of its highly anticipated LED parking/turn signal lights for 1973 through 1980 Chevy/GMC truck. That’s right, now, ’73 through ’80 squarebody C10 owners can easily convert their frontends to full-LED lighting with the arrival of these parking lights.
According to Jai Baek, Marketing and Creative Director at UPI, “LED parking/turn signal lights for the 1973 through 1980 Chevy/GMC Truck have been highly requested by C10 enthusiasts for many years and we’re extremely delighted to deliver the final product for the community.”
These lights are built to not only last for many, many years, but also add style to your Squarebody C10. According to UPI, these LED parking lights come packed with features like:
- 17 amber super-bright LEDs with amber lens (Part # 110885/110886)
- Dual function – Parking light / Turn signal light functionality
- Stainless-steel bezel
- Easy electrical connection with 1157 plug
- Lifetime warranty
A unique feature incorporated into United Pacific units, these LED parking lights feature a bezel constructed of high-quality stainless-steel – matching with the OEM headlight bezel giving the front end a uniform look and feel. The release of the LED parking/turn signal lights for 1973 through ’80 Chevy and GMC truck extends the already massive catalog for the C10. Speaking of the catalog, it’s now available to order at UPcarparts.com.
Whether your C10 needs upgraded lighting or you have another classic that could benefit from the many products offered by UPI, you can be sure you’ll get the parts you need to do the upgrades you want.
