Safety is a major concern when driving our vintage & classic cars on today's highways.  Original tail lights are not easily seen and today's drivers expect to see bright tail lights to warn them of stop & turning intentions of our vintage vehicles.
 
LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting has become the standard of the automotive industry and for good reason.  It is bright and easy to see!  Newly designed LED conversions are available in 6 volt or 12 volt, depending on application.  They are made specifically made for vintage Chevrolet & GMC cars & trucks.

This is a safety item you can't afford to be without!  Whether you have a totally original 4 or 6-cylinder with a 6-volt system or a monster V-8 running a 12-volt system, these are a must-have addition to your vintage car or truck.

There are four different ways to convert your vintage car from the old incandescent bulbs to super bright LED lighting: LED Light Bulbs, Conversion LED Cards, Solid State LED Lenses or Complete LED Tail Light Assemblies.

LED Light Bulbs are a simple and inexpensive "plug & play" solution.  You merely remove the old bulb and install a new LED bulb.  Though this is a quick way it is the least effective solution to the problem.  The draw back to the bulb solution is that the size and number of LEDs that can fit into a bulb is considerably less than the conversion cards, solid state lenses or LED tail light assemblies.  This makes the LED Light Bulbs the least visible of the four options.  While this is an economical solution it is just not as effective as the other options.  LED Light bulbs are only
available for 12 volt applications at this time.

LED Conversion Cards are available for most tail lights from 1926 through 1965 passenger cars and 1926 through 1987 trucks.  These kits have two LED circuit cards and hardware for both tail lights.  Early kits: 1926-1930 passenger and 1931-1939 truck are available in single or two taillight packages.  Most kits are sold in pairs and come with the license light for the left side assembly.  Also included are fasteners, hardware and instructions needed to install the card into the tail light bucket.  They will work with turn signal, taillight and stop light circuits.  These kits are available in 6 volt for most applications for 1954 and earlier and 12 volt for all years.
 
Solid State LED Lenses are a complete "plug & play" solution.  Each lens has LEDs permanently sealed into the lens.  There are no separate cards to install.  Most kits have plugs already attached that merely need to be twist.........Continue Reading
