hi, looking to buy a taillight lens for a 55 dodge custom royal. thanks!!


You need to determine whether you have the early 55 Custom Royal or late 55/56 (all year) Custom Royal tail light lenses.

The early 55 lens has a pebbly-inside finish with the part number 1604 394 embossed on the edge.

The late 55 lens has no "pebbles" on the inside, just three smooth rings, and has the PN 1658 454 on the edge.

The 1604394 is the one on the left and the 1658454 is the one on the right.

I gave all my pebbly ones away to 55 Dodge guys (long before you showed up (Sorry))



This photo of the shorter (less deep) 55 Dodge Coronet 1604381 lenses shows what the inside of the 1604394 lenses look like (only deeper):



I am running 4 smooth 1658454s:

Ha. You might have lucked out.

I just went down to the basement and checked a shoebox labeled "56 Dodge Custom Royal Taillights" and found four loose spare smooth lenses. No loose pebbly ones.

Then I looked at one of the spare chrome surrounds and saw that it contained a lens. Peaked in and it looked all nice and pebbly. Hmmm...

Disassembled it and low and behold, it is a pebbly 1604 394. But I only have the one. Hope that is all you need.

You can have it for the cost of a USPS Flat rate box (you can PayPal me).

I will be going to Point Roberts WA on Tues and can ship then.
