Don't know about plastic, but the glass ones are still available. Try Rockauto.com

No problem! Just weighed a spare glass bulb @ 17 ozs. Think your weight savings with plastic will be rather modest...but, guess every little bit helps!

You may have discovered this already, but the correct part number for the plastic housings is HP4651 and HP4652...the "P" disignating the plastic version. Quick search of the internet shows they are still out there.

here's Hp4651, only 2 in stock. Made by Wagner

so is the whole housing made of plastic, including the lens?

Yep...the entire headlight is plastic! Found a couple of plastic high beams on some '80's Fords, but the lenses looked a little hazy...especially, next to the glass low beam replacements that had been made at some time.

Good idea...
Noted for any future 'vintage' race car...

Let's see some pictures of the car on this severe diet.


Thanks -

I'm all into weight saving, my current trunk lid I'm "body working"
Very insignificant weight savings, but I'm digging the look.
