As discussed in other threads, " original " parts can have many different styles from numerous suppliers. Airstream used different parts even during the same year of production.

Here is what they used on my '64 Bambi II...

An example are the tailights on the Bambi II, most are Bargman 99s, but some came with Bargman 86s like mine did.

Hey, while I won't be needing the teardrop lights (see my post above concerning my bad memory), I did receive a message from Kim at Vintage Trailer Supply. The lense on the teardrop that they sell is 3-3/4 inches long, so it seems feasible that one could trim off the outer ears on that product and drill holes through the inside of the backing plate that are 3 inches apart.

Marker Lights

Lynn, My marker lights all appear to be originals. I even have two on the rear top that have the plastic (red) lens missing from them and the contacts for the lamps are all rusted and corroded from exposure. I also have original replacements that the P/O bought at sometime in the past and never got around to installing. They also have the aluminum bases plus a gasket that (looks new) that goes between the trailer and the lamp base. They were all wrapped in a wax type packing paper in a rusty coffee can when he gave them to me at the time I picked up the trailer. He had them stored in the barn for future use. Of course the trailer had been parked since 1983 when I bought it in 2004. It was hard wired to the barn and used as an office. Well now you know more than you wanted to! LOL! Happy Trails, Ed
