LED TAIL LIGHTS FOR 1967 BISCAYNE
Permalink  
 


If any of ya'll are 67 Chevrolet B Body owners you know the left out feeling when it comes to parts...

I was looking for some LED Taillights - Biscayne has 2 ea side vs all other B Bodies have 3 - industry caters to Impala's... so anyway - I called these folks in North Carolina

"Technostalgia"

They offer a part number 6021 - as advertised both LED panels are red - lotsa guys just intstall one set for the brake lights or change the reverse lights to red lenses - I'm a detail oriented guy so...I asked if they'd make one set in white LED's - yup!

150 bucks for Driver and Pass side... red set and white set... the guy who answers is the guy who's makin them. You just gotta ask...

I have had some cool LED Modern lights made for a (you guessed it) 1969 Chevelle.

They have some very cool modern day gadgets that are tastefully made.

I would certainly be interested in a set myself and have been looking for a good source. I'm also a little intense about my car.

On a related subject, I have a machinist friend that's making a few sets of foils for me (3 to be exact) that fit between the tail lights on a Biscayne. I'm just waiting for the final cut. Been messing with this for awhile. They are obviously a little thicker than a foil and look slightly different but seem to fit the bill. You have to finish and paint them yourself, but not a big deal. Not sure if most people would want to pay for what a set is worth. I finished one prototype for my car to see how they look and they seem to be fine. Actually better than OEM. Normally all you see is a black space between the lights on most 67 Biscaynes. These change the look quite a bit, and we all know how hard it is to find these in useable condition.

 I "restored" mine - pain in the butt... vinyl taping was a bee-hotch ( they were completely no black at all)

I have a set almost in the same condition as those. Plenty of work to get them to look good. The machined pieces just saved me some time and time is one thing I don't have much of.  The machined ones are close, but not exactly as original. Although most people wouldn't notice the difference once they were painted and the high spots were sanded with fine grit.
