Last week I was in sweden an I've seen first time in my life another fwdlook wagon with an optional roof rack.
I am looking for those super rare fake tail lights from the end of roof rack for my 57 Fireflite Wagon

I have a rack with one "light" present. Not interested in separating it from
the rack. But if you want the whole thing ....

Are they actually wired in to light up? Or just decorative? Work with the brakes?

When I was young, we had these extra lights on our bicycles, mounted on the handlebars. Back then they came cheap, in different colors with chromed housings. I was thinking that lenses from those ones could be a substitute.

Right now, naturally, I can't even find one picture of them, at the time I had so many that it was really hard work to get them to light up with the dynamo

@ Wayne.
this "lamps" are fully useless (according to my knowledge and the non existing wire holes in my roof), because no functions behind. Just decoration. Thats the reason I call them "fake lights"

@Sven,- I remember those "good times"

Did the original roof rack have metal bullets on there?

Super nice!  They look better than the pointy ones - and they look like the fit better too.

In fact, I have already thought about casting such plastic 57-58 DeSoto Rear triple tail lights, but I have too little experience
