Searching for a replacement light and lens

Postby romanfj » Mon Aug 01, 2016 7:09 am



Hi Everyone,

I have an 1982 Interstate with a lot of 83 Aspencade body parts. The bumper lightbar with all the rectangular running lights on it is missing the center light that bridges the seam between the 2 bumper halves. Does anyone know where to get a replacement, other than hunting on ebay? Also, my lights have a blue insert in the center of each red lens and I don't know if that's a customization. Anyone know?

Thanks,
Frank

That's an aftermarket item. It's probably a Markland, but can you post a picture, just to be sure? That way we can know what we're dealing with.

Here's a similar bumper. Mine has the red lenses touching each other that run the entire length of the bumper, so I think it may have been customized with extra lights, perhaps. Additionally, the center of each rectangular, red lens has a round, blue insert.

A guy on another forum had some of these that he wanted to get rid of.
Not sure that they will fit, but might be worth looking into.
