You'll not find a modern bulb like the factory used. Even matching halogen bulbs are fine for judging.

John, while the older lamps may not be currently in production, like GM T-3's, many may still be around. Does anyone know the original manufacturer?

On my '60, the OEM headlights were Mazda #6012. I don't think you have to worry about finding that company around anymore.

MAZDA 6012 is a lamp part number, not a supplier.

Check with Dennis from SASCO when he gets back from Omaha, he'll know.
