Like Dudley says, it's the ground.

Back in 1976 the rascals at the Ventura factory merely stripped the ends of the ground wires and shoved the exposed ends in behind the metal strap that holds the light sockets.

As you might imagine the copper and galvanized metal were corroded and loose by now. I crimped proper ring terminals to the ground wires and screwed them to ground good and tight.
