    Again I sincerely appreciate all the input.

    All 5 bezels have the similar numbers. 32272 with 2606826 underneath. Others have 32273 2606827. Right and left sides perhaps.

    Looking at the pic the two on the left have more arc the the 3 on the right. Interesting they have the same part number when there clearly different as far as the arc is concerned.

    That said should I shop for early Valiant bezels???
    Thanks again Jim

    You probably already tried this but did you try to swap sides?

      Here ya go. Evilbay valiant reverse lights. Price isnt too bad either. Not sure they are the correct shape for your valance or not.

      I hate these back up lights! A lot of money & trouble. When I replaced the valance on my 69 I left them off since the AMD part wasn’t drilled for them. I put an led light strip over the license plate for backup light. Works great since mine is a driver, not a restoration.

        The 2 circled appear bent. Possibly the 3rd one in the middle too. The face side of these appears concave. It should be flat. If the face side of these i circled isnt flat, they are probably bent from a car they were on being rear ended and are junk. If they are bent like i think they are, toss em in the scrap bucket they dont have the correct shape anymore. Its just adding to the confusion in your pic.

        Probably looks cleaner on that 69 without them. Replacing the valance on my sons 69 as well. Will keep old one for a hole template, but may do the LED deal you did instead. Got a pic?

        My high school car was a 68 cuda & it didn’t have them, so when I had the chance to ditch them on my 69 I did it.

          Cross your fingers...
          Thanks again Jim.

          Very informative. So, 67 BU lights will fit my 68 valance, if the holes are placed at the correct contour position? I agree the 69 BUs are a bit too long

          I have heard that 69s came with both short and long reverse lights.

          the amd replacement valance I bought was for all three years, you have to put your own holes in for 67 & 69

            Same valance all 3 years. 67 was drilled a little differently than 69 for the shorter lamp bezels. I have both years. 67 and 69. I can send pix if needed. Early built 69s used 67 lights to use up leftover assembly line parts.

              I'm actually considering this and mounting one on a licence plate bracket The other would make a dandy trunk light.

              That's slick. Not gonna lie, at this point in time, I like the look of the valance mounted BU lights, or at least I think i do (not the long 69's though). Maybe this goes away after mocking up twice pipe exits @ valance.

              I found these for $1.39 a pair plus tax. Approx 6" long and slightly wider than 1/2". Free shipping. Inexpensive enough that I thought about putting then inside my truck bed under the side rails, and in the truck toolbox. They were cheap enough that I bought 6 pairs of em for $9.03 shipped. I figure at that price I can always find a use for em. I guess when I make the plate mount with this part I can post it up on here. I have a nice set of 67 reverse lights with new repop bezels and screws for my 67. If this cob led reverse light thing works out, I may fill the holes in, and sell the lamps.
