Who has the best quality 39 tail lites, Speedway, Mac's, Bob Drake or other? Thanks
Got a pair from Speedway six yrs and no problums
I got mine from Vintiques - I think they make them for many other sellers. Nice quality
If you want the gawkers behind you to see you at night or see you stopping or turning during the day, I would go with Technostalgia lights. I think they look and fit great and a lot more visable than standard reproduction 39 tail lights. You can get them at most of the main mail order vendors, Speedway, Old Dog, Yogi's, etc.
Ford makes a good one.
I second this: my 39 taillights were always dim--no matter what I did,they never were bright enough in the daytime. After almost getting rear-ended last year,I saw the Technostalgia lights at the GNRS this year. I had to hunt for a retail sales outlet: Technostalgia doesn't sell direct. I got mine thru Summit--they are THE best update I've done--super bright on both taillight and brake light. Not cheap, but money well spent!
I found this--see for yourself---
no they don't - haven't for 50 years
I had those on my 37 - they slowly started losing LED's and eventually just gave up to the point where there were only a couple of LED's lighting up, dimmer than old stockers. And you can't replace the bulbs, so that was big bucks in the trash.
If you paint the insides a bright white it helps a lot. (on the stock type not the leds)
I'll 3rd the paint inside white comment. Mine are from speedway and have been fine.
Got my pair from speedway in 1990 still working, But put glued alum foil inside to brighten lights
