There is only one turn signal light housing for all 65 Skylark/Special/Sportwagons.
There are two lenses - one for Skylark, and one for Special/Sportwagons.

thx Mark,
Sure, if I just open my eyes and read what is on the lens...it clearly say 64.
So anyone whant to by a set of -64 lenses with housings and bumper bracket plates.
And also anyone have the -65 Skylark lenses (smaller then the GS ones) and bulb housings for sale???
(getting too many parts laying around due to not doing my homework before buying).

You are or correct sir! I've seen that done more than once.
Be forewarned - a straight, rechromable 65 Skylark front bumper and usable front turn signal housings are a couple of the hardest to find 65 parts. They're out there, but you'll have to be persistent.

64 signal lights have separate amber lens that fits behind the clear lens to give it the amber color.  They use standard clear 1157 bulbs.  65 models use the amber colored 1157a bulb instead.
