The time draws near folks. The Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association hits Vegas, November 5 – 8, and will become the epicenter of all things automotive. Over one million square feet of exhibitor space that draws the biggest and the best from the automotive aftermarket industry will be out in full force.
For all you hot rods fans, United Pacific Industries, a global manufacturing brand of classic car and truck parts, is illuminating the 2019 SEMA Show with five new lighting products. They are designed to bring vintage vehicle lighting up-to-date with contemporary technologies.
* A 7-inch LED headlight with integral LED turn signal/running lamp bar (DOT/SAE Standard)
* A 5.75-inch LED headlight with integral LED turn signal/running lamp bar (DOT/SAE Standard)
* LED sequential taillights for 1955 Chevy cars
* Round, chrome exterior mirror with integrated LED turn signal indicator for 1966-72 Chevy passengers cars (convex surface for right-hand mirror)
* Rectangular, chrome exterior mirror with integrated LED turn signal indicator for 1968-72 Chevy passengers cars (convex surface for right-hand mirror)
The new products, along with other accessories and restoration parts, are on display in the United Pacific booth (#23175) and The New Products Showcase.
“We’re bringing Chevy customers a range of high-quality lighting products that help enthusiasts take their projects to the next level,” said Jai Baek, United Pacific’s marketing and creative director. “These new lighting features and turn signal-integrated mirrors not only add modern technologies to classic cars, but they increase visibility for the driver and other motorists, which can enhance safety.”
LED headlight with integral LED turn signal/running lamp bar (part #31459 for 7-inch and 31267 for 5.75-inch): Designed as a direct replacement for the standard 7-inch or 5.75-inch (quad headlight system) sizes of original round headlights in older vehicles. United Pacific’s new LED headlights offer greater illumination and incorporate an LED turn signal/running lamp (amber or white lens), which offers a cleaner, more streamlined appearance for custom vehicles and street rods. The headlight plugs into standard housing sockets, while the turn signal/running lamp section requires additional wiring connections for operation.
LED sequential taillights for 1955 Chevy cars (part #110207): 48 super-bright SMD LEDs add distinctive illumination for the popular ’55 Chevy. They’re arranged behind high-quality, red polycarbonate lenses (without backup lights) housed in a custom one-piece, for a factory look. A sequential function for the turn signals is included and the customer can choose to use it or stay with the conventional signal operation, with a simple flick of a switch on the lighting element.
Additionally, a brake “attention” feature is also available with a sequence-once function. Each taillight assembly (sold separately) offers plug-and-play operation with an 1157-type connector. UPI also recommends combining their license plate frame with an LED backup light (part # 50187).
Rectangular chrome exterior mirror with LED turn signal indicator for 1966-72 Chevrolet passenger cars (part #110825 and 110826): Looking just like the original chrome mirrors offered on 1966-72 Chevy cars, these restoration replacements include a discreet LED turn signal indicator, just like the feature incorporated on many new vehicles today. The easy 12-volt hookup for the indicator simply routes through the door jamb and connects to the front turn signal wiring under the dashboard. The left- and right-hand versions are sold separately and the right-hand version has a convex mirror surface for a broader view.
Round chrome exterior mirror with LED turn signal indicator for 1968-72 Chevrolet passenger cars (part # 110296 and 110297): Similar to the chrome mirrors described above, but offered in the rectangular shape that was included on some 1968-72 models. Both versions are officially licensed GM restoration parts and include mounting pads for the doors.
1966 Chevy C10 SEMA Show vehicle
Also in the United Pacific display (23175) at the SEMA Show will be Morgan Younberg’s 1966 Chevy truck. Created by C10 builder Johny G and Kyle Oxberger, it features the first-known use of a Cummins R2.8 turbo-diesel crate engine in street truck application.
The truck features lighting products and restoration parts from the company’s expanded lineup of classic C10 parts.
