An old set of glass trailer lights in home made buckets.
Man, I need to put the heater back in.
Oh, you're a lucky guy! I would kill to get those on my '57.
Good ol' deuce tail lights on the push bar do the trick for me!
'59 caddy lights frenched onto a '54 ford. They are tunnelled about 7 inches. I could take a profile picture of them with the full car if someone wants me to.
I can't believe i never looked at this thread before tonight. 49-50 Ford Lee's in my 51...
Original 59 Caddy tails in my 30 Sedan. Scored them on egay for $25 shipped. I thought it was a good deal. CTJ
lotsa great ideas on here, although this one i like the best because i could play with this idea on my '61 meteor.
Clear!!!! I am giving this thread Mouth to Mouth.
Here's a 61 or 62 Olds. I really like this taillite.
here i used 56 chevy bel air bullets frenched in with home made buckets.
On a Musical Note..
I did this set on a friends Merc.. back in 1990. this is 1 of 2 pictures I have left of this car.. I last seen this in Merc in 1991.
I havent done any others since..
Here's some late 40's Chrysler Town and Country lights that I've added to the rear of my 49 Ford F1. I added blue dots to them as well.
I have been looking for these. I suppose there is no chance these are repoped by anyone..
Here are some
here are mine just roughly mocked up....1958 chevy.
Bump!!! I need ideas for my '54 Chevy.
54 Chevy bezels moulded in, 54 Chevy reflectors with 51 Ford lenses.-MIKE
Heres a couple, the first works really well, '58(ish)corvette in a '40 ford; the other is a '32 with lights into the cross tube
'68 Chev Station Wagon back-up lights with red lenses and LED
Plymouth tailights with 59 caddys in place of the reverse lights in my old buick.
54 buick lights used on the rear of my old sedan
I'd like to say 1st that neither of the following are my pics, theyre all from HAMBs event coverage threads of the last couple of months.Theyre only some random ones while i digg sum year specific stuff...if i may say, the fleet w/ the upside down lenses is tits!!!!!
Right Jeffrey, i hope i will be of some help, if i knew how to post big pics i'd do it, but all i can do is post this bastard thumbs.Anyway, i went through my folders and came up w/ a few nice 53/54s. Now, i know some are almost stock just frenched items,and that some of these cars are pretty well known, but i thought that if i cant be of any help for yur project would still be kool for this thread.well, 'nuff said....except: KEEP THIS THREAD GOIN!!!!!!!!
The last few.Now, this is just my mere opinion, but the Starlite built 53 chevy other than being one of the classiest customs to come out lately also has a very nice tailites treatment, a lot like the Drag-n-Shop shoeboxes, and i would find that very inspiring if i had a early 50s GM body, but yet again, just IMHO.bonez.
63 Corvette on my 50 Coupe.
1956 chev lense and a stainless steel cocktail shaker.
Here is a set of my Maxi tails on my 50 chevy
You just can't go wrong with '40 ford taillights.
Holy Cap, that's cool!-MIKE
32's on a 32,i know kinda boring.
