Pretty sure it's a separate circuit. Look at the fuse box and see if there's a cavity labeled "back-up" "b/u" or similar. A factory shop manual with wiring diagram will help here and is an essential purchase for any new-to-you car. Also look at the lower end of the steering column for a switch, or under the car on the transmission shift linkage.

 

It's possible the car never had them. They were extra-cost option on many cars on into the 1960s.

I have a friend purchased a 1957 Buick Special and it did not come from factory with back up lights, he purchased them from Frank Lyle in Colorado “the 58 Buick man” and installed them, found the wires taped up in rear panel, connected wires and Wala he has back up lights
