I was wondering if the taillights on a 50 champion will interchange with a 51 or if the taillights on a 51 are year specific? Thanks

The bezels and lenses on a 50 are different than those on a 51. If you are a little innovative you could make them work, but they will not interchange without modification.

Overall, there is not much that will interchange between 50 and 51. almost everything is different. A 50 doesn't make a good parts car for a 51 restoration.

All the sheet metal from the cowl rearward will interchange - body style for body style, of course. Drivetrain parts, and some trim crosses over. It's not a total wash.;)

Miscreant at large.
