Factory Headlights

OEM Fit, Function, Appearance - For Less

In their mounts at the front of the vehicle, headlights are continually assaulted by airborne stones, dirt and debris that can scratch or even break the lens. Couple that abrasion with damage from UV rays and you end up with scuffed, hazy, yellowed, and opaque headlights that put out very little light, making driving in the dark dangerous. Headlights are also usually one of the first victims in a front end collision.

The headlights on older, classic cars generally aren’t as complex as modern composite headlights, but their sealed beams, bezels, mounts, and housings have been exposed to decades of wear. The details and fit and finish on parts installed to replace cracked, pitted, corroded and otherwise damaged originals have to be right not only for the vehicle to look like new, but to pass the scrutiny of judges and bring home the trophies.

Quality replacement headlights and components are a necessity not only for safe driving, but to preserve the appearance of the vehicle for pride of ownership and value retention. But the composite headlight assemblies found on most new vehicles can be very expensive to replace, especially when you source these parts at the dealer, and the dealer most likely hasn’t stocked any parts for your classic since the 1970s. The headlights you see on this page are the smart, economical alternative to high dealer prices and lack of availability.

If you’re replacing worn lights to restore illumination for safe driving or repairing a crash damaged late model vehicle, our headlights will fit, function, and appear like original equipment at a much more reasonable price. Our headlights are just like original equipment in every way. They mount the same, take the same bulbs, and once installed, are indistinguishable from factory lights. They’re 100% legal for highway use and meet all DOT (Department of Transportation) and SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) standards and all U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

The companies that manufacture our reproduction headlight components specialize in restoration parts. They know what’s required for original fitment, function and appearance because they’re staffed by enthusiasts who restore their own cars. That’s why you’ll find parts like sealed beams with the original T3 markings as well as headlamp capsules with the vehicle specific frames or attachments on our digital shelves. Attention to detail is vital for a car to pass judging, and our manufacturers build their parts accordingly. Many are so authentic that they’ve been approved by the OEM to be sold as genuine replacement parts.

We at CARiD know that there are times when you need to replace factory headlight assemblies with units that match the quality and function of your originals. While it's more "fun" to customize your ride, sometimes the repair takes priority. One headlamp lens may be cracked. You may have been in a minor fender-bender (lamp bender?) and the mounting tabs may have...
Those of you born after 1990 or so have grown up in an automotive world where “all cars” have composite headlamp assemblies, uniquely designed to be make- and model-specific. If a light within the assembly burns out, you replace “just” the bulb. If the unit cracks, you must purchase a replacement that fits your car and your car only.
When searching for a new set of headlamp assemblies for your ride, you may come across any number of terms which require explanation. Like many other accessory categories, headlamps use their own terminology. For your convenience, we provide you with this list, presented in alphabetical order, and with photos to help you identify these features.

Very easy to install. Takes less then 5 minutes to install, even with only pliers. Practically identical to OEM design and weight. Everything works like it should with no modifications required.
