Default Tail light lens

Hi. I’ve searched the forms and databases and googled till my fingers are numb looking for replacement brake light lenses for my 82FC35SB. Does anyone make or sell these any more? The parts list shows a part number of 2101558. I just bought this bird and it has 2 broken lenses that need to be replaced before I can get it inspected (here in MO). Would really like oem but if I have to replace the whole fixture with something new I will but can’t seem to find those either.
Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Jimmy,

You might want to try some of the school bus parts houses. Here are some examples that look similar but you’ll need to check the dimensions and specs before ordering any:

Maybe Truck Lite 6500? Like John said. Check the dimensions. If it's the right one they are available on eBay.

Just making sure that the lights on your 82 are not the volvo lights that are on an 87. I have the ones that I removed from my 87 if they would help you.

Was reading the posts on my phone & couldn’t see the pics well. I see they are different. Glad you found some.

Thanks everyone! I found four! A fellow wanderer gave them to me for the cost of shipping and a beer when we meet on the road some day. You guys are the best! I just hope I can help others down the road when I get settled in.
Cheers,
