Convert a gas lamp with 12v light fixture to replicate gas light mantles?

I am planning a 12v landscape lighting project involving 6 walkway lights and would like to include a gas post light in the plan.

I would like to include a gas light conversion in this project
I have a gas postlight with two gas mantles and would like to convert to a 12v light that would replicate the gas light mantles.

Is there such a 12v fixture available for a gas light conversion?

If not can I create one by retrofitting the current gas mantle fixture using 2 12v auto bulbs??

Thanks for your help

Automotive bulbs won't give you a natural gas mantle look. There are companies that offer LED mantle replacements. One link is below.

Can you post a pic of the fixture? those LEDs look nice, but I would like to see how you could install the appropriate sockets.
