      1336251 is for 1960 Larks, not 1961.

        These ​1338887 MAY be coming, ask Chuck Collins here:

        Here is one in Boise Idaho, needs a bit of translation and is now sold, but a good idea of pricing for NOS lenses.

          I talked to Chuck about it a couple of months ago. He has no intentions of having them reproduced again.

            Are you looking for NOS or good used? I might one or two good ones left.

                    Just sold a pair of NOS ones on eBay a couple of week ago for $275. I remember buying a replacement one from Studebaker International about 3 years ago for around $120.

                        When I put in #133887 in the online shopping it comes up not recognized. Hmmmm. When I enter #1336251 and choose year (61') and side (left) it comes up with #1336251 and the price is $45.00. Weird! Go figure?

                          The earlier ones will probably fit, but they aren't the same. '61s have chrome bezels rather than the all red lenses of the earlier ones.

                              To use the '59 or '60 Lark Tail Light Lenses on a '61, you cut a New hole for the Bulb Socket and drill New screw holes in the Rear Fenders AND Rear Panel (Seam area) and Plug/Weld up the ones in the rear Panel.

                              Then you purchase the '59-'60 Tail light Housings/Bodies and matching Lenses and THEN it works!

                              Might be better to just wait for an eBay ad to come up for some at outrageous prices.
