For my 1914 Touring, a tail lamp that, as you face the rear of the car, is on the right side of the car with the clear lens facing the licence plate, the red lens facing the rear of the car and, the blue/green lens facing out.

I doesn't matter what make or no-make.

I know they are out there as I found one at Hershey a few years ago.

Unfortunately, it was backed into and was mangled.

I recently sold a Gray&Davis made that way. It went to Australia as they drive on the left. So did some Canadian provinces. Such a layout was used on cars driving on the left side of the road, tail lamp would be mounted on the right rear with the clear lens on the left side shining on the license plate. As you stated a mirror image of US practice.
Works nicely as the second tail lamp to install turn signals!

Marty, if you haven't found one by mid November, let me know and I will keep an eye out at the Bendigo National swap meet.

Layden, that's how I was using it.

Allen, thanks! I'll let you know. I figured one of our down under or British brethren might know of one.

Thanks

Would a reproduction lamp be acceptable?

Rodger, well, I would prefer to find an original, if possible. I'm not in a huge hurry as the touring season is over here. A repro sounds expensive. Is it?

Thanks

Anybody?

Allen, I may be asking you to keep an eye out!
