OEM dual headlight setup

I have seen the OEM dual headlight setups in original sales brochures.

I lucked out when a complete Rhino Grill setup showed up on eBay with the DUAL LIGHT SETUP. Picked up the whole kit for $150 + $50 shipping. I already had the Rhino grill on my truck so I kept the lights and sold the grill and outer lights with my pie tins for more than I paid.

Here are pics (couldn't get the upload to work)

http://gallery.me.com/syncthis#100058


The inner lights are standard 5.75" size used in 50's and 60's dual headlight setups on most cars. My housings had 1 1/2" lobe extensions at the 9 & 12 o'clock positions that accommodate the adjustment screws. I had to break away two tabs that are spot welded into those positions in the pie tin holes and the housings screwed right in. As you can see, the bezels match the outer lights perfectly. These were a dealer option but it seems like not many people ordered them. Since they are based on a standard headlight part I bet that they are fairly standard to most dual headlight setups. A little junkyard trawling should turn up the housings. The bezels might be a hit-or-miss affair.

Hope this helps any body trying to make an original looking setup. Good luck!

Thank you. I've had my eye out for a truck like this for a long time.
My 1st was a '67 J2000 w/230 Tornado that I never could get running. (That was 34 YEARS AGO)

The color is 2000 model year Chysler "Patriot Blue Pearl"
(I think it came on Jeep Liberty's)

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

The (a?) previous owner added the second set of lights to my '66 J3000:

Here's my set up using separate aircraft landing spotlights. I did a simple how-to video for a single wire hook up to a toggle switch. I've since swapped over to Amber fog lights in order to avoid blinding everyone with the spot light bulbs.

Hi Dennis,

So what did you use for the plate that goes behind the bucket and screws into the support. Unfortunately the mustang had the whole section as one piece so can't use that..? I appreciate you listing all the parts needed and part numbers as I am working on tracking those down as well...

These parts are from California Muscle Parts (Mustang) but they can be found at all of the early Mustang places

Headlight Bulb Bucket 1969 13118D (RH) - 1 req'd
Headlight Bulb Bucket 1969 13118E (LH) - 1 req'd
Headlight Bulb Retaining Ring 1969 13015B - 2 req'd
Headlight Bulb Adjusting Screw 1969 13033C - 4 req'd

Headlight rings 3100235 from J&P Cycles - 2 req'd
(these are the least expensive rings I could find, the billet ones are $$$$)

two 5 3/4 inch headlights of your choice, I have two HLA - 0002425831 from Summit - they are upgrade lamps but are not DOT approved (not cheap!)

The only thing left are the two springs to hold the headlight buckets in as well as the "behind the bucket" mounts that I will be either looking for or fabbing up

Dennis
