67 sail panel lights...no such thing?

While begining a headliner replacement on my 67', I found, that under the sail panel "earmufs" there are provisions (holes with tabs for screws) on each side for courtesy lights.
I've searched around a bit, without any success. So, my question is; do they exist? ...or am I chasing unicorns?
One way or another, I think they'd look pretty cool in there.
I'd apreciate any sugestions!

Those cut outs are for use in other GM A-body cars (olds, Buick). Puttting lights in them would be incorrect for GTO. It's your car!, do as you please.....Eric

I don't know about '67's, but I had an early '66 GTO that had the dual "map lights" instead of a central dome light. They were near but not actually on the sail panel area. The car actually was a pre-sail panel '66, having headliner all the way to the package tray. I agree with Eric and Alky: no lamps on the panels themselves.

Yeah, Eric....I can see it now: The wife navigating with the map lights, checking out hi-end retaurant locations while you're doing a wheelstand, heading towards central Manhattan....a thoroughly sophisticated and refined Juvenile Delinquent!!

If the parking valet's got ahold of Eric's keys, his goat would end up just like the classic Ferarri on "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"....airborne over a RR crossing at about 160mph!!!!
