I think the easiest/most fair way to go is to draw names/VINs from a hat for each model year range. I don't think there is anyone on this forum that doesn't trust you to do a legitimate drawing, at least none I am aware of. If the draw is done in an above board manner then there should not be any exclusion of past club volunteers. Most club volunteers do not get enough recognition and swag for their efforts and they should not be excluded because of that.
I do think that their should be an installation time frame and condition of car. The company donating these want to have them installed and functioning with pictures in hand so they can use them for promotional purposes. I'm sure they have some ideas on when they need to go to press with the completed kits. They will also want to see them being promoted on cars that look like they are in good usable shape, not on a car that can not turn a wheel under it's own power, or has no completion time before the deadline (whatever that will be).
This modification is probably not going to be done on a concours car, but I would think their market is going to be resto-mods, occasional drivers, and daily drivers looking for a safety upgrade.
Agreed, on all counts.

Are these the headlights? https://www.npdlink.com/product/bulbs-l ... &year=1967

Looks like it's over $600 to get a set of 4.

I'm still tempted to try to the high/low set to see if they fit the headlight buckets without modifications.

Also, came across these sideview mirrors while searching LEDs on the NPD site: https://www.npdlink.com/product/bulbs-l ... &year=1967

I don't really care for the LEDs in the mirror, but I like the price. Does anyone know if they fit the same holes as the stock mirrors?

This is the information I am looking for! Thanks JETEXAS! I am about to start a grille replacement project and want to use LED headlights as part of the project. Not interested in the contest as much as information on a direct fit LED replacement headlight. So two questions:

1:Are these the headlights they are offering as a direct fit for the contest?
2:Has anyone installed these and do they fit with minor or no modifications to the bucket?

Thanks

PS JETEXAS the second link in your post is the same as the first link not to a mirror.
