Wires to nowhere !

Any ideas out there as to what these wires were for.

I am trying to tidy up the engine bay and these severed wires I found at the right rear around the oil filter area. Appears like they come from the loom where the rest of the wires must go to the tail lights.


Thanks Steve.

Need more info. Year? A/C working or removed? Integral fog lights in center reflector?

It looks like they are (were!) tail light wires.

Thanks billjam and Johan,

78 with air and rear fog light missing should it have had one.

Tail light and fog light wiring appear to be exactly what these wires are.

Now I will need to try and work out how my tail lights are working.

I had to repair my rear fog light electrical connections as the insulation was melted from exhaust heat back there. After I repaired all the shorted and melted wires I had to carefully secure the wires away from the muffler and such. Works fine now.
