Were those amber lenses a short-lived trend from around 1963, then? My '67 Catalina has clear turn signal lenses, as does my '68 Dart. Even newer cars like my '76 LeMans, '79 NYer, and even '85 Silverado have clear lenses with the amber bulb. On my Intrepid it's just one big combination unit, with the turn signal bulb itself being amber, but then the outer part of the headlight unit having reflective amber on it to pass off as the side market.
I think my '69 Bonneville might have had amber lenses though.
That Falcon's cute, but too small for my tastes. Plus, I've always been afraid of them because of those "drop in" gas tanks.

Hmmm! My 1968 Buick Special Deluxe had the clear lenses with an amber bulb. My 1988 Buick Park Avenue is also configured this way.
#116 of 133 They made them both ways.

Amber lenses or amber bulbs.

ok i beg to differ...if you remember back in the day if you could not tell the year of the car just by looking at it or you were not sure... thats when you look at the tail light or turn signal lens and it would give you the year. gee my len's are dated '62...front turn signal lens and rear tail lights....

Was not always accurate.
1962 falcons came with clear lenses from the factory but a lot of people switched them out. They were probably MADE in 1962 however, hence the date.

Hi and welcome to the Forums.
We don't allow classifieds ads in our Forums, so I'd suggest that you try one of our partners like www.autotrader.com. I believe they have a special 'classic' car section. Also your local Dallas craigslist would be a good place to advertise.

I still own my 63 Ford Falcon Futura. It was the first car I actually purchased myself when I was 17. It is not currently running because I took out the gas tank and never finished that project. Need to re-line original one or purchase the newer plastic-type. It is a 4-speed shift on the floor. Also, a convertible. No restoration work has ever been done on the body. Only a new top years ago and a few lousy paint jobs even longer ago. Hoping to get inerested in working on it one day - busy taking care of aging mom on weekends and working two day-time jobs many days. Some day it will get some attention. Garage kept. Not parting with it. Too cute. Bought it in 1970 - it had 93,000 miles when I purchased it. Car lives in northern Delaware in a garage - taking up space!
