Blu-Flasher/Pwr
Grn/Ong tracer-LR blinker
Ong/Blu tracer-RR blinker
Grn/Yel tracer-LF Blinker
Yel (not sure really faded)/Blu tracer-RF Blinker
Grn-??

Have you looked at the wiring diagram?

Green is to the brake light switch.
White/Blue is RF Blinker & Dash Indicator
Green/Blue is LF Blinker & Dash Indicator
Green/Orange is LR Blinker
Orange/Blue is RR Blinker
Blue is to the Flasher Canister

Here is a wiring diagram that was included in a NOS directional switch kit I installed in a 53 sedan delivery.

The tail light label on the diagram should read brake light. If you need it I have the NOS rear harness that came with the kit. My car was prewired for an after market switch. Send me a PM if you need it.

That sidewise diagram possessed me so I opened up my photoshop. At least 2 wires have wrong colors but I went according to the sidewise diag.

Feed me corrections and I'll edit them in. One this tho -- what is a 'BLINKER'?

What is a 'BLINKER'???
It's a light that flashes on and off as opposed to one that stays lit.

Just a common term used for a flashing light. In many cases it is referring to the brake filament in the tail light bulb when it is wired to "blink" on and off as a turn signal indicator or a similar filament on the front. Really a slang term I believe, I would consider it a verb rather than a noun.
