    '61 Lark tail lights are "unobtanium". If you do find any, they will be well over $100 each. Paying for them is easier than finding them however [:0]. I believe '59 and '60 lenses will fit. They may not be exactly correct, but few will know.

        59 & 60 lenses will work, but you have to rework the screw holes and maybe the bulb location.

                Ouch![:0] Glad I have a pick-up with a P1 Bed... new lenses run about $15 apiece.

                    The problem with switching to '60 Lenses is that '59-'60 Larks had the bulb socket hole in the corner of the fender, whereas the '61 is in the REAR!

                    So then you have to use a holesaw to cut a large hole through fender/rear panel to mount the '60 housing which you will also have to find and buy! Not to mention the '60 Lenses at $45.00 ea. and the special gaskets, and welding up the extra holes. Not very good news, but very do-able!
