    I'll bet SASCO has them.

    As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

      There is a fender extension, but not to be confused with the Tail Light Housing, that has the bulb socket in the center.

      The damage does not show in the pic, so it is probably fixable.

          You want 1327374P for the right side or 1327375P for the left side. Called an "Extension, rear quarter panel"

          SASCO has them for $63.30 each.

          This is the piece that carries the taillight as well as that chromed "cuff" below it that the bumper snuggles up close to.

          The parts book also calls out an upper and lower tail light mounting plate, but I'll be danged if I can figure out what those might look like! I've got a 58 and I've got extensions from a 58 and there's NO plates that the taillights mount to!
          I don't know what they were thinking in '58, but the taillight mounting arrangement (sedans/wagons) is dumb at best.

            Just off the top of my head, not based on fact: but in those days more sub-assemblies might be available rather than buying a complete unit for whatever. Possibly this 'mounting plate' could be the metal inner shell of tail light assembly, minus the light sockets, wiring, lens, trim and screws?

              No, those pieces are to be found in the electrical section of the chassis parts book. I looked up these parts in the body parts book. Since I happen to have both a 57 and a 58 here, I looked at the 57 too. On IT, I can SEE the light mount plate - on the 58, no. I almost wonder if it isn't for the 58 Scotsmans and they just didn't note that. The Scotsmans DO have a different arrangement back there. There ARE mistakes in these books.[}]
