70 vs 71-2 Skylark Tail Light Housings Comparison
by George Nenadovich
Top housing is for 1970, bottom for 71-2. Red
arrows indicate mounting points for 71-2 lenses which are absent on the
1970 version. Also, yellow arrows show missing contours to allow for center
mounting points. The 71-2 versions can be used for 1970 lenses.
Close-up of reverse light area showing center
mounting point for 71-2 lenses and missing contour raised area.
Another center mounting point for 71-2 lenses
and missing on 1970 tail light housings.
Reverse side showing 1970 version on top and
71-2 on bottom. Lower yellow arrows showing mounting screws, 1/4" hex
head, for the wiring harness in correct position for the 71-2 lenses....for
1970, the holes in the center would be used since the taillight screws would
use the lower holes for the 70 lenses.
Two pictures showing the mounting points for
the lenses....red arrow shows mounting point for the wire harness for the
1970. Lower pic shows mounting point for the harness for 1971-2.
Both housings show GUIDE 43, SAE STIAR 70,
MADE IN USA, for 1970 and 71-2 versions.
