The stock lights are 5 3/4. I'm running H4 bulbs in my vette and they plug right in and they work great.

the only thing to be concerned about is the depth of the lens with the bulbs and the seals in place. they need to be the same depth as the sealed beams you're removing. the headlight housing has a hole in it where the harness feeds thru, just be sure there is clearance enough for the new lens.

about 2 years ago i bought some off ebay that allegedly were for an '81 vette, but i ran into the problem stated above.they were too deep for my housings. they're still stashed some where in the garage collecting dust.

I bought two sets of these and only one set will fit the car. The high beams have 2 prong instead of 3 prongs like the other low beams. Anyone interested in these? They are brand spanking new! Let me know if you are interested. Thanks

Well I would like to get somewhere near what I paid for them. One pair I bought for $50 shipped and the other was around $43 shipped. Any offers?

They fit the low beams, because they are 3 prong lights and the high beams are 2 prong. I wanted to find an adapter but have had no luck so far. I have a new wiper motor and window motors already but my passenger's side was faulty so I shipped it back today for a refund.

These don't fit the high beams because the high beams require 2 prong lights and the aftermarket lights are all 3 prong....

I have seen H4 2 prong high beam bulbs at Autozone and they should clip in.
