Looking for Round Headlights (not the whole car)

If the other poster can't find a good round headlight Avanti, I'll settle for the round lights themselves.

I like the round lights, and wouldn't mind taking a stab at converting my '81 to round lights. If anyone knows of a set of round lights, preferably with some surrounding fibreglass still attached, please advise.

Thanks, Paul

You can get the parts you want for a round headlight conversion from Studebaker International. It's not listed in their catalog as a conversion, but simply as the '63 Avanti round headlight front panel. They also have the right and left headlight buckets for the round headlights.

The problem you'll likely have is locating good round headlight chrome rims and glass. I don't think anyone has NOS parts for that. You'll have to find some good used or possibly repro parts if any are available.

If you are going to start cutting and doing fiberglass work anyway, how

about looking into THESE lights from a late 90s early 00s Jeep Liberty?

I have been pondering changing my round-eye '63 over to these.

I didnt get a chance to do a side by side comparison, but from what I

could tell from looking at them, the angle is REALLY close. I dont know

if the panel is fiberglass or plastic, but either should work. I was also

looking at the turn signals. They looked like they could be rotated up

90 degrees and used as wrap over lights for the front fenders.

Hmmm......they look pretty good, don't they?
