Question Fiat Dino Spider rear lights?

This is an oddity. To all extent and purposes this is a rear light unit for a Fiat Dino Spider but the lens is completely orange. Can anyone indicate what vehicle this light belongs to? I am not sure if the label on the box is a red herring.

It indeed looks like a Fiat Dino rear light, but I've never seen one on a spider completely in orange. MrFiat sells the completely orange ones as a Dino spider lens (http://mrfiat.com/italian/fiat/fiat-...lamp-lens.html), but they also sell the correct orange/white one. If you google the number on the lens (23.8102), it seems the number is the same as the orange/white one.
So in the end I'm not helping much

I have an old photo somewhere showing all orange lenses on a Dino spider, but they're rarely seen in practice. I was going to suggest that all-orange lamps were intended for Dutch market cars only as I seem to remember that. Some 2600 and other Alfa cars had orange lenses where the clear part usually is.

Alex - how much are you asking for the complete lamp? I need one.

I have a set of lenses orange and red. I do recall seeing some cars with similar lamps one all red and the other orange for turn signal only. Fran

I have more than one of these, all for the left hand side only, and all in perfect condition. I did as much research as I could before posting here, so everyone's conclusions concur with mine, but I do appreciate the input! Maybe I ought to post some more oddities from time to time, keeps the grey cells busy

A few more detailed shots. I absolutely love the print design on the box ...

Interesting, that would make them very rare, as only a handful were ever delivered here in Holland. I've seen quite a few Dino spiders here in Holland, but never - I think - an originally Dutch delivered one.

Alex, are you interested in selling the lamps or not?

FYI, Ferrari Dino 246 GT (not Fiat Dino) also looks pretty close -- maybe they had some variants (this picture is of a 1973 model).
