    Without one to compare, from memory, looks pretty close. I don't remember them having an actual hinge like that, but its been a long time. I suspect theis one may have plastic lenses - the original, I'm pretty certain, were glass.

    I have one of those ebay D lamps on my 86" and it is identical to the original D lamp on the other side, with the exception of the chrome screw on the top. The original one is just a black phillips head screw.

    The original ones appear to have
    • Slightly different lampholder
    • Only one hole at the back, for cable entry
    • Different thread on studs
    • ST51 Lucas Birmingham Made in England stamped above bottom stud.

    Mounted on the car you probably won't be able to spot the difference.
