backup / reverse light lens

Post by acurtiss on Mon Jul 24, 2017 6:13 pm

Hi all,

I just joined a couple weeks ago after we picked up a 1967 Falcon window van, which we are going to slowly convert into a camper of some sort. I'm glad to find this resource here and have already learned a lot browsing through this forum.

I'd like to contribute a piece of info about the reverse/backup lights on our vans that were equipped with these. Maybe this is common knowledge, but it took me a while to find it and I thought others might be doing the same search I was. I read somewhere that the lenses for these lights were also used by Jeep Cherokees around '67-'69, and possibly other applications as well. I found the lenses after a quick search on Amazon and ordered them, thinking if they didn't fit at least they'd be easy to return. But they fit perfectly. I don't know if they differ in some way from the original Ford lenses, but they are a heck of a lot better than having no lenses and at $30 a pair, a lot cheaper than the $60 lens someone is selling on eBay right now. Here's a link to the part on Amazon (there are surely others out there).

And here are a couple pics I took of the lenses installed (and one gratuitous one of our scruffy van the day I picked it up).
