Gary,
For your search on Lucas lights, there are many out there that will state "original" for '68 Shelby & GT/CS, but many are not correct. Here are some things to look for:
1) make sure they have chrome backs (you will see many with black backs)
2) the connection of the wire to the housing should be a small round back grommet (not the large grey connection which 95% are)
3) the glass should state "England"

I have attached a few pics as examples. If you are not going for concourse correct appearance most Lucas lights will work. Good luck on your search.

One last thing, according to the build date for your car (15 April), you can also but on Marchal Fog lights (last pic) since your car was build before the recall date of 26 April.
