Rear Fiber optic help
« on: April 26, 2022, 12:59:06 AM »
Any help to which vehicle this goes to would be appreciated. Iíve researched but canít find a definitive answer. There is only left and right. No center light but the molding shows where the center lens would be like on the Camaro. Thought it might be ChevelleÖ

That is odd, I can't think of a vehicle without a license plate lamp.

how long are the fiber optic cables, that may be of help in finding out where this was.
the receptor fittings and insert gromets don't appear to be 1969 issue, I could be incorrect though.
The thru the wall grommets look correct, but why would they be there when camaros lights are inside the body, only the license plate would go thru the wall.
or possibly those gromets fit into the light assembly other than camaro, just a guess could be for a cady or impala, full size car.
camaro coupe cable lengths are about 60".
my guess is that those cables, with that head configuration, may be about 115"-120" which would mead full size vehicle.

Well, itís definitely not for anF bodyÖlast year there was a post about optics with cable length. These are  a tad longer. Full size Iím certain, but canít find anything with just the 2 lightsÖ.at least not yet. Big Buick or Caddy maybe.

The 72 Buick estate wagon demonstrator my parents bought not long after I was born had fiberoptics, I will ask my dad where the lenses for the rear were located.

Iíve had several of these and most were N.O.S. They were all boxed Pontiac. Not 100% sure which model, but mine were all 68 Pontiac.

Thanks for trying to solve this. I saw this on eBay but I can narrow it down. Maybe one of you can figure it out.
