I believe the lights , and starter were optional for several years, but not standard equipment.
There was a cutout relay equipped generator system that was a part of that option setup. Alternators were not because they were not available until the late 1950s because the diode technology had not been mature enough to allow their construction. Jim

As far as I know the first alternators available to the general public were on the 1960 Chrysler products--they were highly advertised as no one else had them. Not sure when IH began using them.

1959 Plymouth police interceptor. It was an FBI car my uncle bought at auction. It was a very plane stock car, big fins, and . No guarantees however. Jim

Could be, but at the time I was a die hard Plymouth fan, and with all the reading I did I think I would have known that. At the time I had a 54 Plymouth, got a new 1963 Plymouth Valiant with the alternator. It might be that the Plymouth in the link was like some of the tractors in that the alternator was added. I will still vote for 1960, but I have no proof.

I did some looking on Google. Buried in the link it says that Chrysler sold the first alternators to the public in 1960. It also said that some police cars had them earlier -- so maybe we are both right.
