I am having trouble removing the plastic lens  from the front turn signal to

the chrome bumper.  Any suggestions?

I had one of those cars back in the 60's and as I recall the lens was a tight fit. Tolerances back then were not the same as today. All you can do is shave down one of the plastic edges with either some sandpaper (if there is space) or a sharp blade like an Exacto knife. Only take off enough material to allow the lens to pass the bumper.
