    Default 57 pontiac tail lights

    I have two sets of tail light assemblies for my starchief. One set has a hole near the top of the housing, about 2 inches in diameter with a red reflector mounted with two screws from the back. The other set has no holes, and the reflectors are missing. They must have been glued in? why the different housings?

    Star Chiefs used the housing with the reflector and Chieftain/Super Chief used the ones without. They are not glued in, they are held in by the retainer in the back of the unit.

    There were also two (subtle) different taillight lenses. The Chieftain/Super Chief used a lens with a round reflector cast in the pattern of the plastic, the Star Chief lens did not have the round reflector. Glo Brite replacement lenses most frequently seen today were all of the Chieftain type.
