weird OHC?

Just picked up an OHC and popped the lens off of the lights and saw this



back side


sh*t looks weird to me, the past ones i've done had those "tube" bulbs or whatever their real name is.

the light is directed toward the reflectors so it gives off a more even light...i think lol

I've not seen one like this before either. I've always seen the other way.
I wonder if there is correlation, like certain years got that one, or maybe certain trim.

I would assume this is brighter than the normal tube bulb type of OHC

idk maybe. this was the only non-sunroof one i found today and it didn't have a lens covering the lights or the display so i pieced it out of 2 ohc's

I have both styles sitting in my garage. Never paid that much attention to it. Just figured it was an updated OHC.
