Taillight Identification?
« on: August 10, 2018, 12:54:40 PM »
My mechanic gave these sets to me just the other night. I am guessing they’re 62’ taillights? I have a 61’ so these are shorter and do not fit.

They sure look like 62 lenses.

There should be a number molded into them near the bottom, it will start with the year that they are for

The numbers on '62 taillight are:

GUIDE - 5A
SAE STD 62

So you can compare with your number

I buffed mine out using the 3M Lens Polishing Kit. It worked really well. It's been 7 years and they still look great. I got the kit from Canadian Tire but imagine in the states it can be found at Pep Boys, Parts Source or O'Reily's etc.
