1967 Shelby Headlights
« on: October 11, 2018, 02:33:22 PM »
What are the correct factory assembly line headlights (manufacturer and lens design) for a 1967 Shelby built in January 1967?

How about listing all of the correct headlights, in-board lights and the chin lights for the '67.
Waitin' for the day I get my first '70 Shelby convertible!

No chin lights on 67 . GE and Tung Sol (TS) were used on 67's . I am not aware of any time issue for ether's use.

There are some out there that sell non-functioning bulbs, not cheap, for the judging classes where the car just has to have the correct part doesn't have to work.

If you want some that work - well that will be tougher and more $$$.

JD isn't wrong however to clarify everything is supposed to work. With that said there are some classes that don't require a operational check. In those classes a correct looking part (still needs to look new) that is non functioning would not be noticed. That was the point JD was making.
