Which taillights?

I'm kinda stuck on what taillights to put on my truck and how to go about it. It's a '52 chevy. The original plan was to french 2 '59 Caddy taillights in each rear fender(one above the other). For a moment I was considering '49-51' merc taillights(not sure if frenching them into the fenders would even work, with the size of them??) Does anybody out there have any ideas, maybe someone has seen one of these styles already done. Any other good ideas for what lights to use. Any which way I go, I want them frenched. I was looking for something different, something that you won't see on 5 trucks at the local car show. Any pics, help, etc is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I've never thought about those before. I haven't seen it done on a car but I think it could be an option.

which taillights

The rear fenders on your chevy are simular in the rear as are my 48 ford pick up. I used 49-50 lincoln and get a lot of positive comments. I do not have them frenched,though. A big consideration will be the era/look your after. I wanted 50's

I'm looking for the '50's look as well. I've never seen Lincoln taillights on a truck, I've seen 'em on many cars though. I'll definately consider them. You wouldn't happen to have a pic of the rear of your truck would you? I'd be happy to see it!
