No fuse box but there are some circuit breakers on the car notably in the kick panel power seat and windows I think.

Also, I had similar issues with dash lights not working and some other intermittent lighting issues. Turned out to be corrosion of the contacts inside the headlight switch.

I  was successful in disassembling it cleaning it all up and putting it back together. I thought I would have to buy a new one but it turned out to be not as much of a nightmare as I thought it might be.

Yeah, the connection on the radiator is just a junction. You can test for voltage there for the front lights, but you can't test ground there. Ground occurs from the connection of the light housing to the body. You can attach a wire from the ground side of the battery to the bulb housing and see if it works. If it does work then, it is a ground problem. If your stop lights don't work, but your turn signals do, then you may have an issue with your stop light switch try disconnecting it, and connect the two wires from it together to see if it works then. The taillights are a separate circuit so you will test those separately.

Larry -
 
That's a junction on the radiator yoke. Not a fuse block. Completely unrelated to the tail lights. 
 
If you had a grounding problem it would be back by the taillight socket. Take a jumper wire and clip the socket with one end and a bare metal area of the body. Turn headlights on. Does it light ? Verify that your bulbs are not burned out and are the two filiment type.
 
Two wires: black and dark green. Your concern is the black wire. Check the black wire connectors to see that contact is being made. You need to trace the black wire back to the headlight switch, which includes the ten-way connector that joins the main harness to the rear harness. Let us know.

Thanks.  I know that those cars have a fuse block attached to the radiator frame, although it  doesn't have actual fuses.  Maybe that is the place to start checking for a grounding problem?  Odd that the tail light turn signals work but the stop light and tail lights do not.  I would think that the turn signal and the stop light bulb are using the same filament in the bulb, while the tail light uses the other filament?

Taillights are a different circuit from the turn signals/brake lights. These old cars didn't have a fuse box. There is one fuse attached to the light switch, but I think that is just for the headlights. Best practice is to start checking things out at the end of the circuit: Bulbs, connectors - including proper grounds, wiring, and work your way back to the headlight switch. A common problem is the dimmer part of the switch, but that should just affect the instrument panel & interior lights. Bad grounds is another common problem.

Speaking about fuse boxes:  Wher is the fuse box for a 59 Dodge located?  I thought it was in the glove box, but cannot find wherever it is (tail lights don't work, but turn signals - same bulb - does).  Doesn't seem like a fuse issue, but nice to check out anyways.....
