70 back up lights

What color wires operate the reverse lights in a 70 Chevelle and where they located? Originally a column shift turbo 400. Trying to hook them up to a 4 speed with an aftermarket switch.

Re: 70 back up lights

The wires should be on top of the column going to a curved switch down towards the firewall inside the car. There should be 2 connectors one with 2 purple wires and I think the other connector will have 2 wires a pink and green one which are the back-up light wires.
