Got a 68 coupe and the back up lights won't work, found wires cut at the back of rear valence. Bought new ones ond plugged in laying them in trunk to check before installing. Started car put in reverse with e brake on and checked and they didn't work.

That's a dangerous way to test them. You don't need to start the car, just put the tranny in reverse and turn the ignition on. So just fyi those need to be grounded so if you just layed them in the trunk then they wont get a good ground. install them or run a ground wire of them then see what you have.
