Same tailights as an EJ Wagon?
Thats a nice bit of gear and has the right power unit as well.

From memory, the Bedfords and, maybe the Chevs as well all had EJ taillights from new.

I would have thought GMH would have come up with another option seeing as that Bedford and EJs were built 16 years apart.

I can confirm that Bedfords of that era had EJ Holden taillights. No doubt GMH believed that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

In the mid 70s, an EJ lens was twice the price of the same part for a Bedford.

Maybe GMH built a couple of million EJ tail lights too many and decided to build Bedfords just to get rid of the lights?
