Default Does any one know what car these are from?

I would like to keep the same tail lights in that came with the car, and I have to replace the one on the left side because it's cracked, but I can't figure out what it comes off of for the life of me. The only thing that is stamped on them is England so I all I can figure is it's probably from a british car that might have not been available in the US.

Without a picture to see what you have it makes it kind of hard to say what you have, but I'll give you a starting point.

Bedford CF or Triumph TR7

Post a picture of them.

Both can still be had at a price.

Yep, TR7. Which is slightly odd as your serial number indicates an early car. Must have been right when the TR7 became available.

Don't know if you've ordered stuff from outside of the US before, If not be warned, on top of the cost of the item and the shipping you will be charged a duty tax for it comming into the US.

Best to find one inside of the US.

About a month ago there was a TR7 with the tail lights in good condition here in the wrecking yards. They get $16.50 each in the pick a part yards here. Went there last week and the car was gone. The yards here keep the cars for about a month and then scrape them.

If a TR7 turns up again maybe I should pull the tail lights just incase someone needs them in the future

I'll see if I can get the one on EBay, I might wait to see if I can get my friend to bring one over from England it might be cheaper that way, but thanks for the offers.
