  • 63 lark

    SO the other day i was kicking tires on ebay when i came across some amber "reverse lenses" for "export" '63 larks. After pondering for a few days, why amber??? I concluded that they were made for cars bound for Europe, since they (Europe) have strange laws regarding motor vehicles and the lenses must have been used because the tail lamps have/had? to be seperate from the turn signal lamps? AM I close? I dunno the world may never know?

      Yuh. Remember in the early 70's when American cars started to have multi-part tail signals? The Euro laws in the 60's stated that tail lamps had to be red and turn signals amber. Eventually, it filtered over here.

      I remember my dad coming back from Vietnam and buying a Renault R4. Everything about that car was weird, it seemed to me, since I'd been raised on Buicks and Ramblers. The multi-part taillamps were the weirdest, and I remember Dad having to unhook the side-mounted front fender running lights (since they weren't legal in California yet).
