Re: '68 el Camino Backup Lights - Candle power

Well, 1141 is not much less and still more than the 1157 that runs the brake/turn signal. Found this website ( that lists the 1156 with 32CP, the 1157 that is in the taillights (brake/turn signals and running lights) shows 21/4CP, so the brake/turn signal filament looks like it is 21CP and the running lights are 4CP.

So what I am looking for is a bulb that has an 1156 housing with 4CP to match the running lights......
