LED Tail lights 57-61 Bus

Thanks for checking out these custom, handmade LED lights for 57-61 Buses! The purpose of these lights is to provide a faster lighting, as well as a brighter and safer alternative to the stock style incandescent bulbs normally used with the stock light assembly. This light has been designed to highlight the beauty of your original early bus lenses, using strategically placed LEDs to illuminate the unique hex pattern. They also give the classic light a very modern LED appearance when lit.

With a total of 44 LEDs per side, you are sure to catch the attention of other drivers on the road, so you can now focus on enjoying the drive in your classic or custom Bus, instead of focusing on the rear view mirror hoping that the car behind you can actually see you.

I build these lights in 6 volt and 12 volt, because they are a nice addition to ANY early Bus, stock or not.

The lights will function just like your stock lights do, and only need one additional wire to be added (included with purchase) in order to provide a good ground. Installation is very easy and can be done by anyone with a couple of common hand tools.

You will more than likely need a new turn signal flasher relay to for correct flash speed when using LEDs. I offer these for both 6v and 12v.

6 Volt LED compatible flasher $30 USD+shipping
12 Volt LED compatible flasher $15 USD+shipping
6 Volt or 12 Volt LED lights $110 USD+shipping

I will ship anywhere.
Call or email with questions
A 10% non-refundable deposit will be required if you ask me to build a set for you. Thanks for looking!

Photo quality kinda sucks, sorry, LEDs are hard to take good photos of in the dark. They blind the camera :D

Let us know when you do. I would be down to buy a set for my 63 panel. Bought relay kits and upped the wiring for the H4 headlights with upgraded bulbs to make them more reliable/brighter. Might as well make the brake lights more visible too.....

I put a set of Chips's LED's in my oval and WOW :shock: what a difference. I also want a set for my 67 camper when he comes up with that product. Should sell a pile of them I'd imagine!
