    I agree they look like Olds....maybe '48/'49 98 or possibly '49/'50 series 76 ??.......do not think they are 88's

    The '49 Chevy lights are a little wider, and slightly shorter, and have a lens that follows the bezel contour.......very similar in appreance......a '50 Chev taillight has same bezel as '49 but should have a different lens.....lens at top 'sticks out' from bezel and slopes to meet the bezel at the bottom.....

    Didn't the 51 Olds 88 (not super 88 or 98) have lights like that too?
