Default Headlight?

I am trying to figure out what vintage cars had the longer topedo looking headlights? or where I might be able to find some. I would also be interested in any info on the larger in diameter headlights. Anyone?

Had a 40 chevy that had the long headlights, they bolted to the top of the fender. I think you can find some fiberglass ones from I think it's called Chevy's of the past. Good luck.

Long head lights were mostly used in the late 30's, early 40's.

EvilBay has them

I have the moulds for a fibreglass E&J type 20 headlight shell nd ring. Don't have the time to lay them up myself but I'm planning on sending them to a custom fiberglass startup in the UK so they can start producing ... Should get round to it soon.

I'm thinking of spinning up some aluminum E&J's for my VR. Scaled down a bit though... not too sure if they will look right but worth a crack!!

Great idea Mate ... Would be awesome to spin up some smaller ones with (say) a 3 inch aperture with an inside just large enough to take a bi-Xenon HID unit - The speed bullets would probabvly be able to handle it.

At the right price I'm sure they'd sell.
