If you're still looking, I may have those on the back of my '73, I'll check later this week when I'm at the truck.

So I got the taillights now. Just need to get them cleaned up and I'll post pictures. No cracks in the lens or housing, 4 prong connection, great shape. Need to figure price now once I post pictures.

Just took some pictures and will be uploading. As for the electrical tape, no spliced wires but that rubber boot that covers that bulb backing like the other one, just isn't there. The green wire on the one with the tape is wrapped all the way around and I'm not going to remove it as it's on there solidly. The loose electrical tape that was around the wires didn't effect anything, it was just there. I just found a box for shipping so I'm trying either UPS or USPS to see an approximate rate, any preference?

Oh, if you see a slit in the wires, that's because when the truck was wired for trailer brakes and such in the 70's/ 80's, they used a wire tap to connect to the wires so it's not like it was split, just a wire tap was used at that point.

Here the pictures:

The bulbs that were in there have been there for a while but the sockets are clean and non corroded.
