    I am looking for the clips that go behind the tail lights that the screw goes into on my 72. I have checked Ebay and other sources. Does anyone have a part number on these?

    Those plastic inserts are way to big. The ones that you need are the same that hold the plastic grilles to the aluminum frame on the 73-79 F series truck. The Ford part number is 379830-S .

    The very reason I printed "something like these" and not "these are the ones I used". Great info given on the part number.

    A source here:

    Shop around in the last two links as there are a bunch of selections and not all of them Ford...

    Based on the items per package you will have more in one buy than you will need. Sell to other members???

    Thanks everyone. What a great resource to answer questions. I was at a car show in Sapulpa Oklahoma a few years back and a man turned me on to this site.
