    I believe your contest to have an error. The Fairlane taillight is a 64, not a 63.

      Hi Michael, we stand by our current assertion all four taillights shown are from 1963 Fords. Please keep in mind backup lights were still optional in 1963 and different trim levels of the Fairlane could affect the tail light design.
