  • need to know about some 61 lark taillights

    I found these lark tail lights they are on eBay
    They are listed as 61 lark but I would like to
    Know if they will fit a 59 lark wagon

    The bulb socket locations are different (large hole in fender) '59-'60 are on fender AND rear panel seam, '61 are are in REAR. And the Lenses do not fit the housings.

    The '61's are rarer and harder to find but all are available NEW, so don't pay a lot for any used ones.

      I do not think that they are a direct bolt on replacement. They can be made to fit. Why bother? 1961 Lark tail lights are generally more expensive than 1959 Lark tail lights.

          If you really want them, just buy two Housings, the 2 lenses and plan on some drilling with a hole saw and welding in some plugs.

            It says they're NOS- and they're already at $76.00!

            With everything else your car needs, I recommend buying a MUCH cheaper pair of 59 or 60 lenses and spending the extra money on something else.
