In the parts manual this tail-lamp is listed as "chrome". You guys are right it doesn't look like the normal XJ tail-lamp. I guess I'll have to decide later which style to use.

This is for a Comanche... But with the addition of chrome.

The XJ is still at the paint-shop... And I'm still shopping!

An unbelievable find of a NOS "Overlay"! It's the chrome piece above the rear license-plate. He also had the other Comanche chrome tail-lamp... Although I can't use them... At least I'll have a NOS pair!

I did purchase a NOS tail-lamp as in the photo. Unfortunately it was damaged in shipment. It was loose in the box and a dangling packing-staple marred the chrome edging.

But... Not to fret... I found a lot of 7 each! I haven't made the purchase yet as we have not agreed on a price.

That given... What is your(or anyone's) opinion on what a pair of NOS would be worth?

The rear license-plate chrome overlay has arrived from Switzerland!
