3 or 4 inner fender terminal strips?

I see classic parts offering a 3 connection terminal strip and a 4 connection terminal strips for the headlights on the inner fender.

What is the difference? ...
(Other than one extra terminal)

Thanks,
Cody

Stock on your truck would be 3 terminals. High beams, low beams, and parking lights.
4 terminal strips could be used for turn signals (dual filament bulbs in the parking lights.)
Don't know if some (later?) trucks came with 4-terminal strips.
[on edit] Apparently 54-55 1st came with one of each. Don't know what the extra terminal was for. Link
[on edit again] Found a '54 wiring diagram. the 4th terminal was for the horn. (mounted behind the grille?)

In 1954, there were 3 terminals on the driver's side inner fender and 4 terminals on the passenger's side inner fender.

The 4th terminal is for the horn, which got moved "up front" in 1954.

Should we be keeping score? wink
You beat me to a link earlier today. So as far as I know (at least for today) were tied at 1 each. grin
