Was wondering what kind or brand headlights you guys are putting in your cars?

I want brighter but not not new car look.

I use Halogen headlines - Wagner H5001 & H5006 on my 62’s - also for 61, 63 & 64.
They work great.

Might be the same for 58, 59 & 60.

Doing a relay upgrade will make a difference in the brightness of your stock head lights. Take the head light connector off the back of the light and put your volt meter on it crank the car up at idle and see how much voltage you have. I will be willing to bet it's less than 11 volts.

If you do the relays it will be at lest 13 volts @idle. Relays are a good upgrade and you can do it for less than $50.00 bucks if you can do some simple wiring.
