Modern headlights for a '63 3b
« on: January 14, 2020, 07:35:00 PM »
Can someone direct me to a good source/brand of a contemporary headlight replacement that has a modern style removable bulb?

I used this brand on my Wrangler and the quality was good for the price. The lenses are actually glass, unlike many of the cheap plastic ones.

Do these fit into the original headlight bucket?

I'm not 100% sure on a 3B, but they should be a direct fit for most applications using a 7" round sealed beam headlamp.

Hella also makes an excellent H4 headlight conversion for 7" bulbs.

I'm not sure this helps as these were installed probably 30 years back.  French, and use a standard H4 bulb.
