4 X free headlights

IF there was ever any doubt that this is a real community, get this: Don Rush of West Coast Classic Cougars asked for a forum where he could GIVE stuff away: FREE! And you know, there is a lot of stuff floating around that I think we would all like to see go to a good home rather than to the land fill. I know that my garage contains a few items that I would like to find a new home. So post your FREE stuff here!

4 X free headlights

Post by suprahuman » 13 Nov 2012, 03:09

Hi guys

I will replace the headlights on my 67 XR7 to comply with UK laws. That means I'll have 4 x sealed headlights bulbs in fully working order up for grabs. They have the FOMOCO stamp on the glass, if no interest they'll go in the bin.

You will have to pay postage if you fancy 'em

don't forget to put in relays if you upgrade to QH headlamps

I get a lot of my electrical stuff from this company

The 5 3/4" units are below the 7"

Just check ebay.co.uk and there are heaps of 5 3/4" kits

Let me rephrase that. Will they also fit a 1969?

I have limited knowledge of these car to be honest. Maybe somebody else can answer this question.
