For those that might not know, lamps made for left hand drive cars have light patterns aimed the opposite way as lamps for right hand drive. In the 1980s-1990s some of the "cheap" new old stock Lucas lamps of all designs were ones for right hand drive cars, which are of little use at night in North America.;

This provides some idea of the different patterns:
