Marchal Illuminations

Marchal began producing lights for the French market in 1923 and quickly became the standard for quality throughout Europe, and later the USA as well. They are mainly known for their headlights, fog lights and driving lights, although they produced hundreds of other small parts and ancillaries relating to lighting and electrics. In 1962 they merged with SEV, and later were absorbed by Valeo. They continue to be produced in Japan to this day.

In their heyday of the 50s and 60s, they produced model specific lights and mounting brackets for manufacturers from Ferrari to Peugeot and everything in between. Ford utilized Marchal lights on several models from the mid 60s into the mid 70s. They also featured quite prominently in European endurance racing in the 60s and 70s.

Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, Marchal is a former Vintage automobile restorer who fell in love with the style and functionality of Marchal lights over the years, amassing a large collection of lights and lighting ancillaries. He specializes in lights from the mid-30s up to 1980 and travel frequently to Europe in search of rare and interesting items.
