50's era Brake Lights

Hi, I'm looking for a source for 50's era brake lights (LED Preferred) I do not have the housing... only 2 holes in the skin

Would also like to add (not standard on 50's trailers) backup lights.

Also looking to see if anyone makes teardrop LED marker lights.
Thanks all!

1956Safari,

Regarding the back up lights, I put them on my Liner. They were purchased from a Chevrolet truck parts house here in Orange, the lights look period correct and were from 1960ish Chevrolet truck. They are round and about 3" across.

Bill

Thanks guys. Bill, would you happen to have a photo of your 34 Liner rear end? I found a site that sells 60's Chevy truck parts but not sure which lamp you are referring to.

I will check when I get home. The lights were purchased from Truck and Car Shop in Orange, CA. The light is here: 1960-1972 Chevrolet and GMC Truck Parts 1960-1966 Fleetside Truck. The lens is glass and they only stick out about 1".
