Happened to notice the reversing lights on this 1971 VW T2 van the other day, and thought that they looked remarkably similar to the indicators & early rear lights on Haflingers. Thought that it might worth investigating re: a possible alternative source of replacements. This UK site sells them, and no doubt others do too. Whether or not they actually fit I am not sure.

The number plate light clusters might work too?

More than likely, they are Hella (German) or Bosch (German) so it is quite likely that the parts bin had items from either / or it at some point. It appears most manufactures of vehicles source the electrical stuff in batches.

Various other items on a Haflinger can be sourced from VW's range of vehicles of the time, so why not electrical stuff.
