Exterior light for 1962

Where can I find an exterior light for my 1962 Safari? I think there might have been one to fit this fixture in the attachment I've provided. The fixture is located right below the back side window. But I'm just not sure! It would be really nice to have an outside light!

I have one - still has the price sticker on it from a camping store that went out of business in the mid 70's - $10.98. It aluminum with a zinc ring like your zinc cap. Original globe. Paint is peeling from the aluminum head so it will need repainted to someones choice of colors. Also have two of the outlets in your photo. Keep meaning to put them out on Ebay but never seem to get around to it. Shipping would be $12 for priority mail one size ships anywhere box. PM me an offer if you want - save me from messing with Ebay.

Nice looking trailer by the way...!!

Here's the light plugged in. One of the outlet covers and outlet. The original plug looks like bakelite - I'd replace it but it's in good condition. The outlet needs a gasket obviously.

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.
