I believe this issue has been raised here before. From what we've gathered here on the forum the fender top lights were a design idea early on. They were even drawn on early '51 sales literature. But the idea never got made a reality. There were never any fender lights on 1951 cars and they were then removed from all 1951 ads and literature. You can find multiple examples of the same drawings with and without the lights as in the two below. Too bad. I think they look really good. I suppose if you were going the custom route you could get some from a '49 and try to graft them on. I think it would make an interesting conversation piece. If anyone ever gave you crap for them being on there you could hand them a piece of early '51 literature and say, "Look, there they are right there!":D:cool:

Well it looks like there was at least one prototype '51 with the fender lights. Found this picture. First time I've ever seen the lights on a real car.
