Re: tail light

Yes similar to the Chevrolet taillight. Also used on 1926-27 Oldsmobiles. They did have differences over the years such as the license lens is narrower on the early ones. Actually there are three different widths to the license lens. I have only ever seen the Star 6 lens and they are correct celluloid material so be careful not to use too high a power bulb. Never saw a 4 version. Some 28 Durants use same style of light as well.

Re: tail light

The early star 4 cyl cars came with a simple 3” round red concentric glass lens. So you will never find a oval celuloid star 4 lens.
Perhaps over the years owners purchased a replacement chevy style tail lights from one of billy durant parts sales,
(Orphan cars shared parts of other cars)

Our star 4 also came with an add on “curved STOP topper” that was clamped on top of the concentric housing.
Hope you find something you like, happy hunting!
