O52 is a glorious beacon of light

Welcome from San Diego!

All the major vendors sell new reproductions. Used ones, even out here in California tend to rust out at the bottom edge. Its hard to find a rust free example or one that hasn't been backed into

If your not fussy about correctness any 68-72 will fit. The difference is that the 68 doesn't have back up lights mounted in the tailgate.
