    I was able to find two used 61 tail light lenses this weekend. One in is excellent condition and one is in very good condition. I contacted to the two people that were looking for lenses, but haven't received a response. If anyone is looking for a 61 tail light lenses, I'll be listing it on eBay.

    I take that back. I talked to Chuck this past week, and he is working on making another run of '61 Lark taillight lenses. Maybe they'll be available by the end of the year?

    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.

    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.

    Sounds like an opportunity for Stephen Allen

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