 A VERY easy question to answer! You want Cibie E code headlights. These will outperform ANY sealed beam out there, and any other replaceable bulb headlight. To purchase, see:


These are the best you're EVER going to do. Add relays, and they'll get even better. Then you have the option of overwattage bulbs if you want to melt the bumper of the car in front of you! LOL

Subject: <VV> Headlight Upgrade

I am wanting to upgrade the headlight brightness on a '65.  I am curious to know 

everyone's thoughts on this subject.  I would like to go to a halogen bulb; I 

see there are two types: one appears to be a drop-in replacement and the other 

has a 5.75" housing with replaceable bulbs, any experience with either?  I have 

always heard the wiring is suspect when going to these higher power lamps, and 

looking at the wiring, I would agree (16g looks a little small for the current 

required).  Any words of wisdom as for going to a relay setup supplying direct 

battery voltage?

Thanks in advance,
