Good morning All.
Todays question from the novice. My May 56 indicator lenses are plastic, is that correct or should they be glass?

Glass is correct for 58-59.
Up until then they used plastic.

56-58 model year Ghias only had plastic lenses

59-63 model year Ghias used either clear glass lenses or orange plastic lenses

My friend a panel guy laments the day one of his apprentices was working on a 62 Ghia and had removed the glass indicators lenses. The lad got distracted with something and forgot about them when he left them sitting in front of the tyres. Later, the car had to be pushed forward to make room for something in the tight workspace and it went right over both lenses which were of course crushed. The car has plastic lenses now and the apprentice is watched more carefully.
