There are a lot of different options in 7 inch all depends on if you want to upgrade to Halogen what do you currently have on the car.
I have two sets of New LHD Sealed beamed sets taking up space on the shelf if they are any use.

The car went on transport today from the USA to the Netherlands. I reckon it has sealed beams and this has to be changed.....

If you want to upgrade then you could fit all sorts of different alternative 7 inch LHD units i opted for Lucas PLs which where a period upgrade however there are lots of others that are more affordable

I do see the different 7" on ebay, but does the Taimar/3000M also have a little pilot light in the bowl?

No, your sidelights are next to the indicators.

I have a couple of LHD I think they’re the nit sealed unit type, so you can fit halogen bulbs. Let me know by PM if you’re interested.

You can by at your local automotive shop a set of 7" Bosch or Hella H4 units, if you want something more classic like a Lucas P300 Anglo Parts in Holland will have these ones.

I had found the P700 "Lucas" on Ebay. That is not a good one? I'll google the other P type

I like Lucas more than Hella.... It is more "living on the edge".
