Marker lights for '71 Safari

I am in the midst of replacing worn/damaged marker lights for my '71 Safari. The units which I want to replace don't appear to be original in style (VSM 9011 4"x17/8" oval). Does anyone know what style and/or where I can purchase the correct lights?

The factory marker lights on my 71 and 73 were double bullseye. They are commonly available even at local truck/auto supplies. I replaced my originals with double bulls eye LEDs and have been very happy with them.

We wanted the original style with the gaskets included. ordering them through Airstream was the only source we found that included a gasket. They have both standard and LED.

I bought EPDM rubber and made my own gaskets. It's not that difficult to do.

I replaced mine with factory bought lights with gaskets that a very nice forum member had extra. All worked out very well. Post some pics of your safari. Robert
