All red taillights

Hello everyone, this is my first post. I have a 1968 coupe with no backup lights. All four taillight lenses are red. Is this correct for a 68? I searched on backup lights but couldn't find any info. Thanks!

Re: All red taillights

that would be correct for a rallye sport model, which would then have backup lights in the tailpan below the bumper.

A standard 68 would have the backup lights in the inner section of the main tail light housing.

Many, including me, have rigged em like yours cause they look better. If you look in the trunk, you'll probably find the back light sockets, or at least whats left of the wires, along with evidence that a second pair of sockets has been spliced into the wiring for the outer bulbs.
