Yes, tail lights did have a red lens and work lights were clear lensed, big difference in size too! My '57 960 still has all originals of that era, Tract-O-Lite sealed beam work light, tail light and socket for implement or trailer light. The 8N work light was gone by the mid "50's but surely some remained in dealer stock. No light switch on the '57, one changed the harness lead to whichever option is used. Can't always rely on printed data it never kept up with small changes and as often months or even years behind. As mentioned years ago, the '52 8N the work lights did have sealed beams and there was a kit to change the older incandescent bulbs to sealed beam also. Many bought the kit as the sealed beams held up much, much better and cost a lot less to replace.
