Side marker lights

I have been looking for the side marker lights for my 85 32.5 but I can't seem to find the same light. Dose anyone know which light Airstream used i.e Chev, Ford, or Dodge and what years. Or was it an after market light

Unless you are doing a "Restoration: consider LEDs. They are brighter and use far less power.

John,

I've not seen that style of light before. Guess I need to look at the 310 and see if it has that type.

Also, I sent you an email the other day and haven't heard back. Just wondering if you received it.

Our '86 345 has the same side marker lights.
I think they may just be a generic truck unit.

John,

Would this light work? It appears to be an LED version of the original style.

LED version?

I'll keep looking to see if I can come up with anything else.

When we had a NAPA store, I purchased all mine new from them. I put in LED bulbs. All outside lights are LED except for the head lights.

You could get HIDs for the headlights...

The headlights have not gone without upgrades .

I have installed relays for both high and low, along with heavy wiring. New replaceable light, light housings, with much brighter bulbs. When on high, not much goes unseen when all four lights are on .

Have thought of HID's, and everything is in place to go that direction if I want now.

Not sure if this will help with your question but, I do know the front turn signal lense is a GM part. I took my lense to two different GM dealer parts counters. Both told me that it was not a GM part. I eventually found a very tiny almost unnoticeable number that I Googled and found it was turn signal lense for a chevy truck. I got a replacement from gmpartsdirect.com.

Yes the front signal lights are from a 1967-68 Chev pickup

I purchased mine from Mill Supply Inc. They sell for all makes of step vans GM P30 etc. They sell the lens or complete assembly. Here is the link for the lens below.





Parking Light Lens Only GM Chassis Stepvans

I also found this part number from GM Parts Direct. A little less money if it is the right part.
