Where to find old light lenses?

Hi,

I'm looking for the left and right side rear running light lenses/covers for my almost-complete '77 Sovereign. These are the rectangular lenses that sit on the outside of each rear light assembly. Does anyone have any ideas as to where I can find these or anything even similar? Thank you for any help! I have photos that I can email if needed.

Corey

I have a set of tail light assemblies from a 75. I don't know if these would work on a 77. I would like to sell the pair, cheap. There is one lens missing on one assembly, otherwise they are complete.

Help obviously new Airstreamers

I am sick to see our folks get screwed by Ebay or Craigs'list scams.
Today I see where someone paid over 105 dollars plus shipping for some Bargman cake lenses. Don't folks look around or even care what they are doing?
If you come across a neophyte...help 'em out. We have some great vendors here and in the field.

Are the running lights on a '77 the same as a '72? Those are readily available in red or amber at any RV or auto supply store.

I know the ones you are talking about , they are very specific , I think only '75 , '76 , and '77. As far as I know Vintage trailer supply is the only source other than used.

That light was called a "marker" light.

It has not been available for years.

We came up with one that looked nice, but it had to be trimmed on 4 sides in order to fit correctly.

Most people never liked that idea some time ago.

I will post a photo of it tomorrow.

They were also on the 1974 Excella 500.
Not sure about the other '74s.

Since they are really just fluff and not required by state laws I wish I could find a pair in BLUE. No chance of course.

Try this guy: www.taillightking.com, also known as AJ's classic lenses, out of Texas. He had the perfect Cyclostat lenses for my '72, might have what you need. -tim
