interior lights for '59 & '60

Anyone out there have any sources for light fixtures for '59 Tradewind? I'm content to buy something that is not exactly original but has a similar look to lights from that era. I'm in need of interior wall lights over front gaucho for '59 and the same lights for dinette in '60. Thanks for any advice.

They appear to be a standard bathroom wall sconce with a switch. Hit a good lighting store and you should have some luck.

Cherring,
Were you able to locate lighting fixtures for your tradewind?
I'm missing just one lense over the bed, however the 'gold' metal part of the all fixtures have rusted. I've tried cleaning them up with metal polish to no avail.
Has anyone tried to refinish these metal light fixtures? Anyluck?

Paul

Hi Paul,
I tried to clean up my lights and found out it just can't be done. I had mine chromed and like them much better. Now if I could find new lens material. Here's the old-gold version:
