pasadenahotrod Good friend used Corvette taillamps in the stepside fenders, must have been from 70's. He used 2 on each side, one above the other tipped over on their sides. had to make a small rubber wedge spacer so they mounted correctly. I seem to remember there was some weird thing about the light socket assemblies, he bought the lights and sockets over-the-counter at the downtown Chevy dealer in Houston. had to silicone the backs of the lights where the sockets plugged in to eliminate drowning problems since on vette they are inside.
Man, they looked cool. Everywhere he went people asked him about those lights. It was about a 77 black short wb, short box 1/2ton stepside, with inline six and auto, had cragars and radials. Somebody in town is still driving it I'm sure.

Lightspeed anybody know of a place where i can get some tail lights? jc whitney has the style i like but they aren't DOT legal.

helrazr3 my buddy had a 75 stepside that was chopped and he used gremlin tail lights i know it sounds wierd but they looked like they belonged there. They were mounted sideways.

Halloweenking If you can weld, absolutly nothing. You can get sheetmetal buckets for them the same place you get the lights. Weld them in and do some grinding and slap some filler to smooth and prime and paint and your set!

Lightspeed visibility is the main reason i was going for the third brake light. anyways how much would it cost to have them frenched?

Halloweenking Lightspeed good buddy, I used to have a 4x4 '72. If your going to use those tails I'd advise you getting two sets for visability. Mount them/french them staggard beside eachother, they will look great!

Lightspeed thanks

Halloweenking Well then buy a set and put them in if you like them ,you answerd your own question :p

If you need help installing them let me know and I'll help

Lightspeed basically the truck will be stock, maybe a rear roll pan with exhaust cutouts and a third brake light on the cab. besides that basically stock. i like the look of the 40 ford tailights.

Halloweenking depends on how crazy you want to get, how good a bodyman you are and also the theme or look your going for. I've seen the old teardrop ford lights, mustang lights, caddy lights, chevy sighns, newer chevy tails. the old caddy bullet tails. You name it I've seen or done it.

Give me some information on what look your trying to acomplish with the truck and I'll tell you what would be a great asset to it.
