Hey fellow Chevy folks, I recently got a '28 roadster and had to replace the tail light bulb. When I removed the lens, I found 2 light bulbs, one for the 'running' lights and one for the brake. I was able to find the #63 replacement for the running light from the Filling Station, but the other bulb (Brake light) is listed as "T-1141 Mexico" and I cannot find a 1141 6V bulb online anywhere. Does anyone have a source or a suggestion? Thanks in advance. Beth

1141 is a 12v bulb. I dont know what number the right one is, but I imagine someone will be along to tell you shortly.

87 is the number for the STOP light bulb. Headlight bulb is 1129.

Check with your local auto parts store or the Filling Station. Either should have the correct 6 volt bulb.

That is just crazy! That is the number clearly stamped on the base of this bulb. Would a 12V bulb work in a 6V system? It seems to be working but I'm sure the right bulb will work better. Thanks for letting me know.
