1957 Overlander. Ceiling lights

Just getting familiar with my new to me 1957 overlander (California build). There are three overhead ceiling light fixtures that are about 9 inches in diameter. They are circular and look fluorescent. Don't know I'd the fixtures are original. Should they be 12 volt or 110 originally? Have not installed 12 volt battery yet. Also found what looks like a small ground wire poking out of the front belly pan area just behind the hitch? Any ideas?

Actually four ceiling lights. Thought possibly they were originally two way, one way 12 volt and one way 110.

That is the way my 63 is. The 12 volt bulbs look the same as the 110 ones but burn out fast if you put them in the wrong socket.
