1956 DeSoto front turn signal pods;
Take a look at this web site for some rear and great tail lights.
Cool tail lights this is an excellent thread.
Great stuff, thanks.
1936 Chrysler airflow lenses and birdcages modified with blue dots. 1937 Dodge buckets. 1950 Pontiac bezels highly modified mounted on a 26-27 t roadster with 31 a fenders.
Update to Merc taillight installation shown in post #76. Fenders were pie-cut to flush their surfaces with taillight housings. RussB photo:

Interesting contrast seen at Vargo
'56 Packard lenses frenched into extended fenders. Bumpers are Pontiac with a rolled pan in the center.
Double up on original '39 chevy buckets with modified trim rings and cut down '59 cad lenses. WX1
1963 Corvair lights, I dig them and I'm using them in my next roadster.
Anyone knows what this one fits? It's not MG and I don't think it's 41 Studebaker. It does say that it's a LH. Neat looking but I can't ID it.
I'd trim the lenses so they don't stick out from the bezels quite as far.
My 33 truck with 40-50's school bus tail lights.
'37 Ford tails on drilled stands.
I got a question. I have a 1960 bel air, will 59 cadillac taillamps fit in the factory holes on my 60 bel air
Look's like a front marker light from a 54 Pontiac
I'm falling in and out of love with these. Been meaning to take a poll. I'm on the damn fence.
My '54 210....Desoto tails, and Desoto Bumpers.
Love the lights but the bumper looks massive and heavy.
49/50 merc tail lights on a 56 ford f-100
I was thinking the same thing. Maybe too much like a truck.
Frenched 59 caddy
Wolfex1, they look good and it is good to see somebody try to use something besides the typical Packard tail light. Any pictures of the whole car to know how they look with the rest of the car?
What are your plans for the DeSoto bumper? I think it would look good if you frenched it in. Just my two cents.
