I am building a 67 Shelby clone and bought a new fiberglass nose piece. What headlight buckets can I use?
I looked at a buddy of mines 64 Falcon and they look close but a little big. The headlight opening in the nose is 5.5" and the standard mustang bucket is about 7".

Any Idea's?

Thanks in advance everyone.

I believe the original headlight bucket came from a '61 Galaxie. The '67 Shelby used the smaller diameter headlight (same size as on '69 Mustang). You also need four buckets: two low beam, two high beam. I don't know of any repro souce for the Shelby headlight buckets, although Tony Branda Shelby/Mustang parts sometimes has used ones. You'd need to check with him. His website is http://www.cobranda.com/. You'll need to call him reference availability, as his on-line catalog doesn't list them.

Hope this helps.
