I'm assuming you mean taillight lenses not the complete assembly. You're only going to find original used '67 taillight lenses or occasionally you'll see NORS lens made by Glo-Brite.

The NORS Glove-Brite lens comes in a box with a bright yellow label. I messed up the label when I opened the box but this is the label you're looking for and the part # too.

The prices for these '67 lenses are ridiculous. The first Glo-Brite I got years ago cost me $54.00. A couple years after that I paid $150.00 for the other. As you know, if you really want it you gotta pay.

Are you firm on needing new or would a good used pair suffice? I'll keep my eyes open if I see anything I'll give you shout.

Ha that's funny. I might use that some time.

Just a side note. The OEM lenses are painted black on the sides as you probably know. The aftermarket ones have no black.

I remember seeing someone trying to pass off the aftermarket ones as originals a while back. I think Glo-Brite was the original manufacturer anyway but it seems the FoMoCo commands more money.

I hate to say it but I may have bought the last pair NOS from Green Sales about 12 years ago.
On a side note the 67s may be the last time real glass was used for the back lights.
At least someone still makes the lenses I know that.

It shouldn't be that hard to find a nice used set. Every 67 made except wagons had them. I have two NIB I bought back in the mid 70's, might have cost $25 a piece. They are reserved for my baby. Prices are nuts now.

Well, that's three of us telling him we each have a pair of the lenses. Nothing like making a guy feel bad! ;)

As far as finding a nice used set I'd say it's possible but not easy.

Are yours cracked or broken? If just dull and dingy they can be cleaned. Polish them up like a pair of modern cars headlights that have yellowed.

68 looks close but not the same. I think I have some spare used in pole shed. It would be Monday before I get there to check them for cracks or pits. If they are ok I will let you know.

I've seen restoration techniques for cracked plastic lens that use clear coat to fill the cracks. I think an old member here, Bumblebee, had a post showing his tail light restoration.

Sorry forgot to tell you, I looked and the chrome on the stars is pitted. I must have gotten them for the outer housing.
