What size 6 volt bulbs should be in parking lights?

In my 55 F350 there are apparently two different watt bulbs in my parking lights. One is brighter than the other. I haven't had the time to take them out and check. I know it could be a ground issue for the dimmer one.

So does anyone know the recommended bulb for parking lights in a 1955 truck?
Thanks.

Industry number 1154 .. Double contact 6V bulb for parking and tail lamps.

All FoMoCo vehicles: 6 volt thru 1955, 1956 was the first year for 12 volt.
