I assumed he was looking for a dome light, as we would call it this side of the pond, since he said "the interior hood lamp" and hood=roof in Britcarspeak.
Almost Brian.

Hood is convertible top in Brit lingo.

If in doubt, flat out. Colin Mc Rae MBE 1968-2007.

Give a car more power and it goes faster on the straights,
make a car lighter and it's faster everywhere. Colin Chapman.

Early eighties ford trucks had a nice retractable under hood light with a mag base as well, kind of a large assembly though. There are an awful lot of “tactical” lights out there now for next to no money.

They never had one from the factory.
I used to own a GMC truck and it had an under hood light that was on a retractable spool with about 10 feet of wire that worked well in roadside situations.
