Looking for 2 61 lancer taillight lenses, need the lenses only.

Thanks, John

Those can be had out of Australia; lens repro wizard David Azzopardi makes them. Second from the left in the bottom row of pics on his site.

Hey Johnny, just curious, why do you want 61 lenses for your 62?

It's not a restoration , one of my taillight s the center section popped off and broke I actually really like the 62 lens with no center but can't get the other one to come off without breaking. So if I'm going to replace I like the 61 look better but in the 62 housing.

I had an email exchange with him just the other day. He is notoriously difficult to contact, but worth the persistence.

There are a bunch of lenses listed on eBay from $50 plus modest shipping for singles to $199 for a pair.

I hope you have not purchased the '61 lenses yet as you will not be able to use them in your '62 tail light housings unless you also have the "buckets" that the bulb socket snaps into. Because of the recess of the '61 lenses the light socket buckets are much deeper than those on a '62. They buckets be interchanged if you have them. If you just put the '61 lenses into your '62 housings, which you can do, you will not be able to install the bulb socket into the light because it will hit the back of the '61 lens before the bulb socket snaps into the light bucket. Forgive my terminology but I think my meaning comes across. I went through this on a '62 Lancer I restored in the early '90's because I could not find good, complete, '62 lenses even then.
