Can anyone tell me what gauge wire was used for the accessory back up lamps for 1950-52 passenger cars - part # 986408. I would like to replace the original wire that can with the lamp set before I install them. Thanks

According to the Shop Manual and the wiring diagrams, the front park lights and rear tail lights use 16 ga. wire. I did also look at the Accessory Installation Manual for the back up lamps but no wire gauge was mentioned there. So I would assume that 16 ga. was used for the back up lights and for the accessory turn signals as well.

No problem. There are a couple on eBay now for either transmission...you can study the photos and possibly make a determination that way:

And one for the standard transmission:
