Are these original Trillium Marker Lights?

Salvaged these from my '76 Trillium 1300. Wondering if they are orignial. They do not appear to have ever been replaced.

Thanks David. Any reason to believe you marker lights are not original? Did your lights arrive yet?

Your marker lights for the Trill are still available. Not sure if they come in LED.

The marker lights are different on each of the three Trilliums in my yard. One of them has those lights. (1977). I thought they look familiar.
I am actually planning to convert all the marker lights to an LED assembly. It's funny that I like the orignal tail lights so much, but don't really notice the marker lights.
I got the tail lights today. Thank you! I wish I could say I have sent the windows. They are packaged and ready to send, but I have been bed ridden for a while. I will send them, I promise.

My 1980's markers DON'T look like those. Mine are simple, cheap looking, almost flat with no Fresnel type lensing and I will replace them one day with the latest available and convert to LED, or simply buy similar sized LED units. I'm more into better-than-factory, rather than OEM. Ditto with the tail lights. I'm open to ideas here!

Well, to each his/her own...I am going with LED's also, but I understand how some people get nostalgic and want all original. I'm like that with my 1963 Honda Cub!

I like the LEDs also, though I am not completely happy with the look of the tail light I got.

I agree, I love the Trillium Falcon. This is my first fiberglass camper and it is quite an extensive restoration. Can't wait for spring and my first camping trip!

Dave, send them when you can. Hope you feel better soon!

I am the original Nostalgia Kid- ask my wife! So nostalgic I did almost everything I could to convert my '71 MGB into a '66! Oddly, my 20 year old Miata looks as new as it did when it came off the showroom floor, but I've upgraded everything but the body. What is a Honda Cub? surely a motor bike? Earliest Honda car I remember is the little S600 chain drive roadster of the mid 'sixties. And what is a Trillium Falcon? Pardon my ignorance. Do let me know what/when/if you replace your tail lights. I do not know what units Joe is using, or if he is still in business, but the Arizona(?) guy has not replied to my email of quite some time back. Hope he has not gone under. I can also check with Escape, just up the road from my village, and see what he is using for markers and tail lights.

Sorry, I guess I should have put my camper's name in quotes, it's a Star Wars reference. Millenium Falcon was one of the ships in the movie. Honda Cub was the motorcycle that made Honda Motor company. I have about 25 mopeds, but the Honda Cub is my baby. Like to see a pic of your MGB. My taillights are already gone, sorry.
