Default Tail lights

I need to replace the tail lights on my 85 GT. There is a local guy selling his 83 GT tail lights. Will they fit ? LMR has two different part numbers. I need more than the lense as the backing is all cracked and broken as well.

The 83/84 should have flat black between the lenses. 85/86 have charcoal. Easy to paint if the '83 lenses are a good deal. I did the opposite with my 86 'vert. I painted the lenses flat black as I think it looks better:

so the problem is not the lenses. mine actually look real nice its the backing plate. It's all broken and cracked. I wonder if you can just buy the black backing plate.

I'm pretty sure used is all you can find/buy for the tail light housing. The lenses can be {carefully} removed and swapped from one housing to another. They are held together with butyl tape and small clips.
