I'm thinking they may work.. dimention wise. Only thing you can do is measure 'em.

Those regency lights look too tall, but i'm going to measure it when I find one. If theyre not too tall it should be pretty easy to paint them black and mount them. Ill have to buy 2 sets of sealed beam silverstars $$

Well my first concern with any of these would be the fact that they are a solid rectangle, where as the Bonneville'* headlights have a slanted line on the grill side, so they wouldn't mount flush with it like the ones on that euro-bonne.

Looks like the '87 century is a candidate as well. I think GM used these headlights excessivly in sedans throughout the 80'*. If you have a GM only wrecker near by, that would probably be a good place to go. Also if you watch ebay they may come up every so often.

If you are happy with the rectangular look, this would be a darn good start

The seller has the other side available as well. I am sure he could get you the measurements you need. Looks pretty similar doesn't it?

Maybe this would be even better.... if you didn't mind paying shipping

My buddy has an 83 thunderbird and I already looked at his lights, theyre too big and not quite angled right. I would prefer round headlights but if I could find the rectangular bonneville lights that would be a lot easier. Also, what wattages do foglight bulbs come in? If I can get two pairs of foglights and put brighter bulbs in the highbeams I could align each pair seperately. I think the beam pattern wont be that big of a problem because old BMWs and jeeps have round lights too.

I couldn't help but fudge another pic
