Marker Lights and License Plate Mount

Most of my marker lights are toast. They have rotted from 30 yrs of UV. I need to replace them. Are these off the shelf generic items or are they a special million dollar a piece AS part? I don't want to spend $500 on marker lights and If LED lights are 4 times more than conventional lights I will pass on those.

My license plate mount is basically gone and I need a new one of those.

I think most of the lights are also used on trucks and big trailers. You should be able to find them online.

I replaced my marker lights with LED lights I got at O'Reilly's. They are identical to what I took off and were very reasonable!

I just got done replacing every single marker light and tag light on my 65 yesterday. I got the new lenses and bases from VTS and they were identical to the original Grotes that came on he trailer. Price was very reasonable, less than $8 a light.

There are pics of the new lights in my album with the link below.

Hope it this helps..
