    66 BJ8 Front Single Lamps

    Friend bought a 65 (sorry, it's a 66) BJ8.
    The rear shroud has the red brake light and the orange turn signal, as it should.
    The front shroud has a single clear turn signal on each side. Like the rear, should have a pair, clear and orange.
    Could this be a car that was built in transition from the 1964 to 1966 year, using older parts? 1964 front shroud, 1966 rear shroud? Or is this too much of a noticeable issue and the factory would not have done that.
    My feeling is, car was in an accident and the repair shop put the wrong front shroud on.

    PS. edited year from 65 to 66

    Sometimes it is better to travel than to arrive.
