Q: 2-Bulb Corner Lamps
Was there a certain number of turn signal assemblies that had two bulbs in it versus single bulb?
A: Early model 68s had the 2-bulb markers,which were phased out in the first couple months of production. Any models had this not just one or another. As near as I can tell its sometime in Sept. that it changed to a single bulb.
I think that alot had to do with the new government requirement to have side impact markers in 68. The Firebird didnt have a separate marker like the Camaro did ( much cleaner look than the ugly step sister) so they put a separator and bulb in the turn signal housing. Later it was modified to illuminate from the side and front with one bulb thereby saving money. Doesnt sound like much of a savings but one dollar each car and it justifies that cost engineers position.
