Help! My headlights are horrendous. So what do you suggest for a 1969 Ghia fit for headlights. I can't even see my alley at night with no street lights. Good thing I just plain know where it is to drive down.

Those will bolt right in. The best are, in my opinion, the old school style with the separate bulb.

I have a pair I'll sell for $50. Don't remember what bulbs they have, most of my cars have 100 watt high beams. (illegal) Rolling Eyes

I bought these cheapy Indian made lights from CB, and they were pretty good! When I tried the 5" version, they were awful.
