Re: tail light lenses for 1965 Coronet?

Thanks for all the input all.

Here's an ad for the Coronet 440 wagon.

Here is a station wagon bezel:

Here is a non-wagon reproduction Coronet 440 lens & bezel set:

The 440 without a backup lens apparently has a plate there instead of the backup lens.

I'm scratching my head as to why Chrysler would would use different tail light lenses for 1965 Dodge "B" cars with no backup lens than cars with backup lens. Seems expensive to do so.  "Different" as in shorter?  The bezels look similar.  (I know the 1965 Coronet 500 and Coronet wagons used different tail light lens.)

More Mopar parts fun. :)
