  • Sealed beam headlight kit '37 Studebaker

    Does anybody have the website or name of a company that offers a headlight kit which allows you to convert to regular sealed beam headlights for a '37 Studebaker? Thanks, Jimmy

            Jimmy, Last year I sold a conversion kit just like that one for about what the current auction bid price is. This was a pretty popular item, and you do see them quite often at swap meets. Only caution I might add is that the small trim ring is somewhat universal (to fit many applications) and the ring I had just looked funky. If you have stock lenses and reflectors, you can get a 12v halogen bulb insert from Speedway Auto...

                    Jimmy,
                    modifying your reflectors to take a Halogen bulb is a good option, and possibly better than sealed beams.

                    I converted my 37 to 12 volts, because I just thought it was the right thing to do. In hindsight now I have 6 volt cars, there is never a problem with them, but I was 35 and stupid then and I am 43 and stupid now.

                    With 12 volts and halogen lamps a 37 lights up like a firefly that just ate hot tobasco, and the great thing is that everything looks original behind the old glass lenses.

                    Good luck
