In the evolution of many mild customs, a taillight change is necessary in order to improve the flow and lines of the car. Some ’50s cars, such as the ’51 Oldsmobile, came with some rather unattractive taillights, while others featured classic designs that were frequently swapped onto other custom cars. When Highway 99 Hot Rods started building Jared Roethlisberger’s ’51 Oldsmobile, a pair of ’54 Mercury taillights were found in a box of parts that came with the car and he decided to use them. Since every car and every taillight is different, making a swap like this always requires a bit of ingenuity and fabrication. Follow along as we show you how we cleaned up the rear quarters of Jared’s Olds by swapping the stock taillights for these ’54 Merc taillights.
