I did not want to start a new thread, so I decided to post in this one, because it is closest to what I am discussing. For those of you who have'nt read my profile, I am a writer. I hope to succeed one day, but until then...
I am working on a short story that takes place in the late 1960's or early 1970's

My main character carries a flashlight in his glove box; there is a scene whereand uses it to light up a storm/fallout shelter where he and his new girlfriend loose their virginity. I want the flashlight to be a 3D cell, with a standard PR bulb (which is what they had in that time). I want it to be made of machined aluminum or high impact industrial plastic. I am thinking of Eveready 1351A/1359, Bright Star 1624, 2124, 1826 or 1626, Any 3 Cell Kel Lite, or do you know of any others that would be suitable. No brass flashlights, please. I look at my Bright Star 2224 for inspiration (I know it's weird but that's what I do when I write.) The reason why I don't use that model is because that model has only been around since 1985.

I have used specific models of flashlights in my other stories, such as the Energizer Find Me, 3D Maglite, SureFire E2D, Mini Maglite and the 4D Maglite.
I would like CPFer's opinion on which light I should use.
