A newbie question - on my 68 there are no c pillar interior lights. I wanted to confirm these were standard equipment. I'm guessing the PO either lost or did not bother to replace them when he had the new headliner put on. Thanks

Well, not the answer I was hoping to get so I guess I will add them as the courtesy lights do not cut at night. Thanks all.

just wondering here too... does the wiring harness in the Standards come equipped with the pigtails and such for the decor lights?? i saw a map light ( above the glove box ) on Ebay a few months ago that i almost bought, but i dont want to have to rewire it all to get it to work. same question for the rear C pillar lights. i took the sail panel trim off and saw that there is a relief for the bezel, but didnt notice if there was a pigtail for the light itself.

my 68 did not have the pig tail. but it does have the wire running back. what I did was just splice into the wire.. I belive it was black with a blue stripe...then ran the ground to one of the screws that hold on the light itself.

sixt9, that wireing job is easy. The originals pluged in to the courtesy lights under the dash and ran under the sill plates back up and over the rear wheel house. All you have to do is run the wire down one side if you want and then run it from one side to the other. They ground to the body right by the light itself.mm

My 68 std did not come with them either, but the wiring is in place to just plug them in right behind where the light mounts. The pigtail is taped back against the harness, pointing towards the trunk. I'll make another post if they end up working.
