You might have to settle for 1178NA. The NA is natural amber. If you put them on both sides they will look ok. If you want original the Ford part # is c8zz-13466-a. Green Sales in Ohio has 11 in stock their phone number is 1-800-543-4959.

I just got off the phone with my father, He found a cross reference to others that work.
Now are they supposed to be clear? Or orange?

Hey Marcus, I had the same problem with my '68. I finally located the the correct bulbs (1178A) at National Parts Depot (NPD). They're $3.25 a peice.

Holy Cow!! wow,that's amazing, you can get 1157's for 1.49 a pair at Autozone. Wonder if Autozone carries that 1178.

The original 1178A's were painted amber. These are no longer legal (so I've been told). The only option is to use the 1178NA. The globe has an orange/yellow tint. Best thing I've found so far.
