What's in the Box

Polished stainless steel rim taillights for 1938-1939 Ford. These taillights have a glass lens, single 1157 dual-filament bulb, and match the original tail lights closely.

Notes

Note: Due to the 1-piece backing plate design and factory crimped bezel, the bulbs in these taillights are not easily replaceable. Slight bending of the bezel may be required to remove the lens to access the bulb/socket area.

    • Black wire = taillight
    • Green wire = Stop/turn

Looks great on my rat rod

September 27, 2013
These worked great on my 36 Hudson rat rod. I mounted them at an angle and they gave the back end a great look. I ordered gaskets separate, since it said the lights did not come with them, but they did. I wasted $5. Overall satisfied
Pros:
  • Looks Great
Cons:
  • comes with gaskets don't order extra
Yes, I recommend this product.

1938-1939 Ford Red Tail-Stop Lights

September 13, 2012
if you use these "as recieved" and never have to change the light bulb these are fine. The "bucket" is well formed, the mounting studs are off a bit, to change the light bulb you have to pry the back edge of the bezel back, the foam gasket is flimsy at best and the light socket just plain sucks...Chinese junk. These appear to be the only game in town but I would buy a USA made, quality product in a heartbeat. Although I won't recommend these I don't know where to get better ones so these will have to do.
Pros:
  • Glass Lens
No, I would not recommend this product.

  • Perfect Fit
  • Just the right size
No, I would not recommend this product.

Plus, with RapidFire technology, the brake lights are pulsed rapidly three times within the first 1/2 second of pressing the brake pedal followed by constant ON. This cycle is repeated every time the brake pedal is pressed. We think this is a valuable safety feature, but can be overridden at time of installation. To disable the pulse feature do not hook up the red wire on the tail lights.

Application Note: This bucket will not work in conjunction with the Mini-Zephyr taillight assembly (911-37033) nor will it work with the regular Zephyr taillights (911-37003) as these units are not to the exact 38-39 Ford spec.
