Corvette taillights ?
Posted by: marko ()
Date: November 28, 2018 07:29PM

i was having a chat with a friend about the taillights on my 66 4 door; im think i like the 65 ones better, esp after seeing the 65 clear lenses that are available from azdave.
are the socket/light assemblies the same - can the 65 lenses be swapped for the 66 0nes or would i need specific 65 units ?

then we got talking about corvettes - does anyone know how different or similar the vair & vette taillight units are ?
will any corvette taillights fit a 2nd gen corvair ?
we were thinking the 74 vette ones look like a possible candidate with the least modification.....
i dont have any set plans right now, just gathering info......

Housings are the same for '65-9

68-72 corvette bubble lenses (aftermarket). they are even brighter (lens isn't as busy)

The vette lenses were used in a 65 I bought from CB Gaffney a few years ago. Now owned by Mike Kelly (corvairaholic). CB wrote a detailed article in Communique in 1987.

tx guys,

the bubble lenses are interesting but i want to have reverse lights in the stock position, i dont want to add extras under the bumper.
to my eye it looked the the 74 vette tail lights would work

heheh, i dont even have custody of the car yet, it will arrive in the spring so i
prob should wait til its here......
ive been buying stuff it needs, like roof weather stripping, so i should prob wait on the cosmetic stuff
