Bought this tail light body this morning in an antique shop south of Toronto. It's not the typical design. The mounting bolt is on the back and the large red lens is facing the rear of the car as usual .. but the small clear lens for illuminating the license plate is on the opposite side than the typical lamp. It's on the drivers side. Anyone know why? Canadian variant?

Maybe it's for a right had drive car. Do they have the taillight on the right side also?

Just like our RHD car lights. You have the makings of a matching pair for a LHD car.

Allan,

So, you use a pair of tail lights instead of one? I'm assuming that you also have a special right side bracket for this as well. I have never seen a right side tail light. Anyone need this?

Mark, I try to set up tail lights in pairs on all my T's. They get a brake light too. Can't have too much light at the rear.
I bought half a dozen left hand electric tail light bodies at Chickasha in 2010 for this purpose.
