New rear lights 541 / 541R

Post by VFK44 »

Not the cheapest, but it must feel good to buy a fully boxed set of new rear lights for a 65 year old car. £240 or offers; compared to the price for modern car lights, could be considered a bit of a bargain.

In the long distant past in the 80's, I went to an auction sale of a company that had gone bust south of Bedford and bought a large box with around 36 of those rear lights.
I was selling them for around £18.00 a pair, I believe, which was not a bad profit, as I had bought them for a bid of £36.00 !!
Included with them were a lot of new chrome rims for the same lights and spare new lenses.

Hi Mike,
I don't suppose you have of the rubber gasket seals between the light and the car body? I've tracked down some in the US, but was hoping to find a pair in the UK.
Thanks
