    I thought the Euro tailights were amber at the top... Shows what I remember!

    I always wanted the T84 headlight option, (RH Rule of the road lights), but I don't know if the FW ever got them, the Impala/Caprice/Roadmonster did. But very rare now.

    You can easily check if FW got the T84 option. Run your VIN on the Compnine tool in the FAQs, then scroll down to check out all the available RPOs (past your car's RPOs). I think it was available on exports, but my memory is hazy...

    When I checked years ago T85 showed up, but T84 was absent on the D Body cars.

    We they not exported to LH drive eurpoean countries? Or cost reduction, just leave them with stock sucky US spec headlights?

    Re: '93-96 Fleetwood Euro Tail Lights

    BlackDeVil,
    Here in Ireland and the UK we need to have amber rear indicators too. However general opinion is the Euro tail lights don't look right. Three tall red tail lamps for us at the rear please - all day long. American cars have big red rear lights right! And in Ireland we can keep the red rear turn signals on cars over 30 years old, so we do.

    What I did on my '93 and '94 Fleetwoods is carefully drill a hole in the back up lens unit (it unscrews from the top of the bumper) and insert a sprung loaded GM bulb holder in the hole and put an amber blub in. Works a treat. If you are worried about it falling out you can swap the turn signal blub for the fitted back up (reversing light) bulb and put the reversing light in the hole you made. However if you cut the hole just too small and finish it off with sandpaper to open it out the bulb holder stays in snugly. You can silicone it in if you are worried about water getting in but mine have been fine for 5 years.

    Bizzarely the '94 needed 2 amber bulbs per side to get the indicators to flash at the right speed - 2 bulbs were needed to match the amerpage loading of the three stop/tail light bulbs on the standard flasher. In the '93 I have an electronic flasher with an adjustable delay and it only needs the one bulb.

    For the front I converted one of the sidelights with an amber blub in the '94 and I think both of them in the '93.

    You may need to 'disable' the side marker light in the grey side trim which flashes with the indicators. I just pulled the blub holder out and left it in the trunk drop off panel at testing time. If you need to cover up that light just take off the side panel and cover it with black tape.

    I've just noticed the difference in Hartford's rear window and mine - interesting! So that's what Brougham looks like without the padded top!

    Good luck, Nick

    Re: '93-96 Fleetwood Euro Tail Lights

    It is interesting that in Ireland (a European Union country, like us) they apparently check the colors of the lamps, whereas in Finland they check the color too, but mainly they are interested in the markings on the lens! Nice job Nick, but that kind of solution would not get approved over here. I think I actually located the set of taillight lenses that turbojimmy was talking about, but then I also learnt that those lenses are most likely for Japan, not Europe. I can see them on pictures of Fleetwoods in Japan, but never in Europe. I have pretty similar looking taillight lenses on my deVille, but all the -93… -96 Fleetwood / Fleetwood Broughams that were originally imported to Europe seem to have the U.S. style lights. By the way, my -89 deVille has a euro spec with different rear plate holder, and the Touring Sedan type folding mirrors, for example. Could have done what jayoldschool suggested – make special euro taillights myself - it is not correct, but the people inspecting would not know what was original, and what was not! But a) because they were originally imported to Europe with the U.S. lenses b) there is an exempt for some years including -96, that you can use DOT approved equipment, I can keep the original equipment. So I was making much noise for nothing! By the way, I can see as much Euro here as I would ever want to, and more than I would want to. I have had a number of BMW’s, Mercedes’, whatever, but I like the Fleetwood as American as it can be! Suppose anyone is attracted to what is generally not around. The Fleetwood is still underway to Finland; the ship carrying it is making a stop in Sweden, Helsingborg. I should be able to collect it in Kotka next week.

    Here's a picture of how the tail end of my deVille looks like:

    No, sorry. I never picked them up. They were on the North Jersey Craigslist. I'll look again, you never know....
