Led lighting for vintage?

We have a '59 tradewind currently set up with the original ac and dc interior lighting. We would like to convert the interior light fixtures to a led ac and dc. Does anyone have any leads on led light fixtures that go well in a vintage interior

Buy and use any fixture you like....then swap the internals for LEDs.

We are in the process of replacing original for led. Going to do it slowly so we can get the right lighting.

No the bulbs determine it, the fixtures accept either.

Can you recommend a good website for bulbs and fixtures?

We have the same AC/DC fixtures. For us, though, all of the interior bulbs have shades or fixtures over them. So the look of the bulb itself doesn't matter.

It turns out that LED 12-V bulbs with traditional screw-in bases do exist.

We didn't know this, so for the 12V fixtures, we used a socket-to-plug adapter, then connected to this a pigtail clipped from the end of a cheap extension cord, which was wired to an LCD light panel like this.
