I'm trying to figure out what type of tail light/brake light to put on my 25 touring. Any pictures or suggestions would be appreciated, thanks
I think it depends on what type of car you have: starter or nonstarter. For a nonstarter I think I would just electrify the stock tail light with a dual filament bulb socket. For the starter variety, the 26-27 fender mounted tail-lights are appropriate. On my '26 touring, I mounted dual drum LED lights from Brattons. They are pretty close to the stock dealer installed set-ups of the day and are very easy on my generator. Stock set-up would only be one on the left side. I went with duals for visibility/safety reasons.
The original tail lamp was mounted to the spare tire carrier if you had demountable wheels.
I've seen folks mount two original tail lamps and a brake lamp on the tire carrier. It looks good and gets the attention of drivers behind you.
Great photo, Royce ! Pretty shiney paint job !
Royces photo is indeed what is correct for a '25.
Craig, i have a roadster but as you can see in the great pic by Royce it looks like the same mount. I added another light on the right, converted them to dual filament, and it works great as running lights, and as brake lights. The left light has a window on the side to illuminate the plate, the right one doesn't. You can see what it looks like in this short vid at about the 20 second mark.
This is the combination tail/brake light I installed on my '26 coupe. Although it was not installed at the factory, the Ford Script ones, like mine, was available as an accessory through the Ford dealerships, or, identical non-Ford Script ones through after market vendors. I prefer it over the original stock taillight. Jim Patrick
Yes that is exactly what I was trying to describe, except I have seen people add a third light as a stop lamp too.
That is one good sounding runabout!
