Hi Larry,

Try Bull Motif or East Susses Motors of England on the web.  Also, 
Autofurbish.  The Morris Traveler and the Austin A35 and A30 have rear 
reflectors like yours.  The problem is that the Morris and A30/35 use a FLAT 
rubber base instead of the bevelled one in your picture.  If the rubber is 
salvageable, at least you can get a new plastic lens and fit it in.
