I think either will look OK. I thought about this a while and decided to go clear, (stock), but use an 1157 NA (or its modern day equivilent) bulb in them. Looks stock, until it lights, and the "NA" (natural amber) bulbs give about the same color as the amber lenses, but a little brighter.
The lenses can be bought @ NAPA too. Just look or ask for big truck fender mount turn signal replacement lenses. Can be had in clear, amber, red (for tail lights). Get the ones with the 3 holes. They should have gaskets too.
I flew R/T from LA LA Land to Charlotte, bought several repro parts from DC for my '63 Galaxies I couldn't find NOS.
'Course, I didn't fly to Charlotte just to visit DC, that would have been insane. 2004, the Studebaker Drivers Club annual show/swap meet was held in Charlotte that year, so "She who must be obeyed" and I decided to attend.
After the event ended, we drove to DC's place.
