Is there a diffence between the tail light housing for C/K model and the sedan model?

All Body Parts are basically TALLER on Sedans and Wagons, so since the Fenders are Taller, the Tail Lights have to be.

The '54 C & K Tail Lights are completely different, but do fit and I think look better.

Thank you Rich. I thought that was the case but couldn’t remember.

The '54 housings are, pretty much, also the rarest of the C/K tail light housings, other than those used for the '56 Golden Hawks! Although, the standard '55 - '56 C/K housings aren't too difficult to modify and use as replacements, for those.

The response above may not have been clear.
The Wagon and Sedans use a tall tail light housing that will NOT fit the Coupe or Hardtop models.
They are not interchangeable.

It was never unclear to me, what was unclear to me was why the original poster was asking? It's good that you're clarifying the point, though, Sal. It should certainly be clear now!

Thank you,

I was going to post 'Yes' but the minimum letter requirement prevented that. <G>
