If all you have is one socket that was originally ment for a single element bulb than the socket will have it be modified to accept the staggered position of a dual element bulb. If your Old is the same as a 36 Buick that there are 2 single element sockets. Use one for tail and the other for signal and stop.

Daoldbuick is right on, maybe this will help a little as I don't know what painless gives you. The plug on your column for lights the long skinny one should go like this.

White Stop light switch
Dark green right rear stop light and turn signal
Yellow left rear stop light and turn signal
Purple turn signal flasher
Brown hazard flasher
Dark blue Right front turn signal
Light blue left front turn signal Black horn

On some buick columns they have a green horn wire why I don't know, And I have only seen a couple.

Like daoldbuick said you either have to change sockets or use two.
The parking lights in the rear are the same as the tail lights, which are controlled by the head light switch. The front parking lights are also on a dual filament bulb the bright side or high light is the turn signal and the low side the parking light. I don't know if you are using stock lights, or if that year had turn signals. If you use stock light fixtures, and they didn't have turn signals you will have to put sockets in them for duel filament. If they were just parking lights, you might have a clear lens if so us yellow LED lights. Thats what I did in my 46 ford. The front parking lights are controlled by the head light switch and it has a terminal on it for parking lights that is where you run the wire from, the turn signals from the dark and light blue wires on the column plug. You should be set to go.
