68 Tail Lights/Backup Lights

My 68 has two Red Tail Lights and no Backup Lights. I purchased a Painless wiring harness and I also have an original wiring diagram. I was thinking about converting the duel tail lights into Tail Light/Turn Signal/Brake Light (outside lenses) and Backup Lights (inside lenses). I would have to purchase white lenses for this.

Were Backup lights optional in 68 or is there something that I am missing. I have seen them both ways: duel red and one red/one white.

Thanks,
Dan

Also, the Rally Sport lens was one long red lens, whereas the standard lens consists of two shorter lens (red outside, white inside). So you would need to purchase both lenses.

Re: 68 Tail Lights/Backup Lights

Thanks. I figured that the original sport coupe came with Red/White in the tail light housing and only the RS had the backup light in the lower (under bumper) position. Thanks for comfirming.
