If so what brand. Do you like them?

What did you do for the back up light?

As always Thanks in advance

I did away with the backup lights never seem to be that good no way. I have all 6 lights as brakes.
I like them much better than the factory bulbs. I also added a 3rd LED brake light inside the back window.

No need for relays on tail lights. I did install relays for my head lights though. You may need electronic flashers though.

I have been using LED tail lights in the 61 for several years. I purchased them from Easy Performance and loved them so much I bought two other sets for other cars.

The set I used from Easy Performance has a provision for reverse lights, however I opted to custom order them without. For everything to work properly you will need a no load flasher. They aren't expensive and the same company sells them.

https://easyperformance.com/

They have several sequential patterns or you can just have them all on - all off like normal. I chose them because the service of the company and the performance of the product - they are very bright (see video below).

Why buy when you can build it better?

The kit from Mustangprojects above is plug and play and comes with a new flasher which you can set to your liking. Also comes with the 2 extra sockets to replace the backups lights which you will have to splice into your harness. As far as the back up lites I just tucked them trunk lid in case I need for any reason in the future.

Here is a video of mine. No electric flasher is needed for just brake lights.
