    Do you have the chrome fixture, or the red plastic one? The chrome fixture takes two bulbs, originally Lucas 222, replaced by Lucas LLB233. They won't have that but #57 should work fine.

    Re: rear license plate bulb number

    Thanks Randall for fast reply.I have Lucas 467/2 chrome fixture.It has one bulb socket.The number I think would denote its a 2 bulb fixture but it doesn't appear modified.1959 TR3.
    I don't know what the red plastic one is.Off to the store for #57 or what matches.
    Thanks

    Earlier TR3 (like mine) used a combination brake and license lamp, with a red plastic lens.


    You're right about the single bulb, I must've mis-remembered, or maybe my old 3A had the wrong fixture on it. Still a 222, tho.
