Still figuring out where to purchase stuff for an old van. Would like to keep in period correct for a 74 Chevy van. Looking for interior lighting.

The Mediterranean style wooden lights with the colored lenses show up on ebay a few times a year.

Aircraft Style Interior Light

I've been having good luck on eBay with these kinds of lights. So far I have been getting them new for about $5 plus shipping. These are technically period correct. There is one person trying to make the older wood styled lights and sell them on instagram. They're kinda pricey due to the work involved.

I appreciate the suggestions. Trying to stay away from the wood. I don't think it'll go with what I'm doing inside.

I've pulled 4 of the aircraft style lights recently in the junkyard. I grabbed singles. Two I snagged from a conversion, the other two I think were in an Astro I was looking at. All the ones I grabbed were chrome and look identical to what Charlie posted.

I saved to wall sconce lights from our house renovation that I'll be putting in the Queen Anne's Revenge. They're bronze bases with a mother of pearl style shade.
