    Thanks! I can't take credit for the idea but we did end up cutting them out and redoing them because they ended up cracking at the seam. I love those tail lights and you should see them in person at night. The running light glow from bottom up and then there is another bulb that comes on when the brakes are pressed that shoots straight back. The car is in Minnesota now.

    Dont have any pic's but If you google 53 Kaiser-frazer you can see 'em. I worked on one these a while back, (and had a heck of a time finding good lenses) but always thought they were cool. super long and they formed the corner of the quarter panel!
    I know I know useless with out a pic!

    For some reason I can't figure out what vehicle these tail lights come from??

    They seem so familiar but still I can not recognise them. Anybody?

    Looks like that's what they're on in the picture, in the first place.
