licence plate lamp assembly that bolts to the rear over-rider as used on the
If your bulb holder is smaller, it's possible that someone
substituted an map light socket or entire assembly from a 63-67 MGB. It is
a similar looking assembly, but takes a smaller bulb. The 170-100 (LLB233)

light assemblies don't.
