I came across this Atlanta based company on eBay. They sell new Italian production lenses for most Italian cars. This includes the Alfa 1750 BN that we commonly call Grp.4. Also listed are lenses for the Mangusta.

Their site also shows some new production rubber trim for:
Douville 1971-88
Guara
Longchamp 1973-88
Mangusta 1966-70
Pantera 1970-89
Vallelunga 1963-77

Below is their site link.

I spoke to a guy named David who believe it or not, actually returned my call!

Original Post
Not a bad price for tail light lenses. But keep in mind that those lenses, while the same shape as stock all-red ones or the "Euro" red and amber lenses, take a unique mounting bucket, separate for left and right sides. You can screw the GR-4 lenses onto stock buckets but the internal mounting of the bulbs is not correct and you'll get incorrect function of parking, stop and turn signals. Someone once supplied some sort of conversion kit for this combo, but I haven't seen one in years and dunno how well they actually worked. These 40+ yr old assemblies are sufficiently rare that I know of one vendor that's had 3 sets for sale... of left side only- for years. He's been unable to source right side buckets, even used.
Jeff,

Excellent find and linking to this recent thread for aftermarket buckets, complete GP4 lights are obtainable again. Light Bucket Thread

Hmmm maybe a deal here, I have a surplus of right hand buckets!

Julian, I'm hurt. Wink Surely you know complete original Group 4 tail light assemblies have been available for about three years now; that is how long I have been selling my restored and occasional NOS sets.

I only use original lenses,not the reproduction lenses mentioned in that posting. A side-by-side comparison will readily show the difference in quality.
