    I was wondering if '59 Cadillac taillights will fit on a '64 Chevy Biscayne? I've seen them on '58 and '59 Impalas, even on a '61, but not on a '63 or '64. If anyone has any pictures of '63 or '64 Chevy Biscayne, Bel-air, or Impalas with '59 Caddy taillights, please post?

    Thanks,

    Phil

  6. buy a single lense/base and try it out. If it doesn't work, I'm sure you could sell it in the classifieds

    THe caddy lenses are 3 inch diameter, lens for the chevy is 4 1/8 diameter. Don't know if this helps.

    Mooneyes had the 59 caddy lenses with the base that screwed right into the 64 biscayne/ impala. I have two of them. As far as I know, they don't sell them anymore.

    i think they look great on any 1958-65 impala, the only thing you have to watch out for is that, since they extend beyond the bumper, they are susceptible to being bumped against when someone walks around the car, because people generally use the bumper as a guide and then walk into them and possibly break them..
