Bob,

It's the amber version of these (slightly cut off in the photo sorry) - they come attached to a black plastic tube maybe an inch long. Interference fit in the dash and a bulb in a bulb holder pushes in the end. (Fit LEDs if you don't want to be scrabbling around the back of the dash replacing blown ones)

Only comment is that the hazard warning light on my original 69 S4 Federal is red not amber. The lights, in multiple colors, are available from the usual suppliers.You can change out the bulbs for LED's as previously posted.

As I understand it, the difference between the S4 Federal and Sprint hazard flashers is that the switch to turn them on for the S4 is an awkwardly placed slide switch under the dash while the Sprint had a rocker switch in the dash in the center bottom row (between lights and fan rockers).
