    My truck is painted and someone stole my tail lights while it was apart. I am trying to figure out what to use that is pretty much a bolt in. I really don't want to paint it again. I had a friend accidentally back it into a fence already.
    It's about 4 1/2" Diameter. The one's I had were unknown but not stock. I really don't want to go stock on it. Thanks.

    i mess with a lot of these trucks. looks like the hole is still the stock configuration. just get the basic pick-up / early van / breadtruck taillight buckets and use whatever lenses you like. the stock lenses use 2 screws, but it's a nice flat flange, ez to modify.

  5. A Signalstat turn signal lens fits the original bucket, front and rear are the same size. Drill holes for screws or stick it in with silicone.

    My buddy used the repro 50 Pontiac tail lights in his 59. They fit great...available with blue dots.
