Mustang Tail Light Kit With Bodies 1967-1967 | CJ Pony Parts

After years on the road, the taillight area on many classic Mustangs can begin to corrode, which can cause problems for the rest of the trunk area or cause the taillights themselves to stop working. Plus, from the factory, these Mustangs are only equipped with a single bulb taillight, which aren't very bright.

On our 1967 Mustang, we're going to completely replace the taillights with this taillight kit, which includes Taillight Bodies, Lenses, Bezels, Housing Seals, Lens Gaskets, plus we're going to upgrade it with Scott Drake's Taillight 3-Bulb Conversion. This will clean up some corrosion and significantly brighten up the lights, making this 1967 Mustang much safer.

This conversion/upgrade also applies to 1968 Mustangs.

Check out Scott Drake's 3-Bulb Taillight Conversion Inserts:

bumping an old thread.

I did this 3 bulb conversion about a year ago.
Yesterday, I found my turn signals don't work. (flashers, break lights, tail lights etc... are fine)
I found a couple threads on the subject,
but I think I've burned up the turn signal switch.
It can't handle the current from 6 bulbs.

I'd like to see if anyone else has come across this,
prior to tackling the job of replacing the turn signal switch.

Thanks in advance.

I've been running this setup for a 65 (sequential) for 7-8 years with no issues. Mine has a dedicated power source for the brake/signal circuit. I believe the only thing drawing slightly more current from the factory wiring would be the lower tail light filament.

Maybe it is just your turn signal flasher that quit. Do you have the sequential or just the 3 bulb lights?
