The 1942-48 tail lights number 91137019 feature a dual filament 1157 style bulb with one filament serving for the tail lights/park lights and the other brighter filament function is for stop/turn signal use. This is common on most vehicles with a single dual filament bulb on both sides at the rear.

Part # 91137019 This tail light will mount to a flat surface but there needs to be an opening in the surface to accommodate the housing which has dimensions of 2 ½” wide by 1 ¾” tall and also sufficient area behind the panel for the depth of the housing which is 2 ¾” deep. These lights originally mounted on the fender extension on the 1942-48 Ford cars. If looking for a surface mount you may want to consider part number 91137003.

Is this ground through the housing? Which wire is for the turn signals and which is for the tail light? I'm using this light on a 23 Model T mounted in the turtle deck so I'm rewiring the whole car.

Just installed these lights today, they are supposed to ground through the housing but couldn't get mine to work, had to drill out the rivet on one side of the housing and attach a wire with a sheet metal screw through the hole where the rivet was located and run it to ground.. also the green wire was for stop and the black for tail lights...

Yes these are case grounded, green should be your running lamp and black is the stop lamp. We recommend checking them first to make sure.
