    Will '54 Chevrolet tail lights bolt on a '53 Chevrolet quarter ?
    I found a 53 for sale in our area , but I kinda like the 54 tail lights better....esp the one piece all red custom lens ones.
    I wouldn't/don't want to get into doing body work mods to do that swap

    Yep. There's also a 1950's International Travelall light that fits and also a 1950's Pontiac station wagon light.

    54 Chevy tail lights into a 53 Chevy is a simple bolt in. NO changes required.
    Did it many years ago.

    Also don't forget about "Lee lens" for a more kustom look.

    Please, don't even think about using 59 Caddy tail lights.
    Way overused and much too gaudy.
