Seem to remember reading about headlamps from Volvo semi tractor. Probably late 80's to early 90's.

Looked into it. Volvo WIAES, WCA Aero, WIA Sleeper Headlight & Turn Signal Assembly 1988-1997.

Those are interesting. Still looks like it's a 9004 bulb so what's the difference from regular passenger car 86 to 93 lights?

If you modify your lights. . . you can put in what ever bulb you desire. If you just want glass ones get e-codes, or swap with a different year. . . . making sure your grill and hood work with them. I mean. .. they are big square boxes you could fit a number of different things in that space with a little "imagination"

I have had e-codes on my 240 for 6 years and just recently got a pair for my 940, I would never hack up my front end to put something else on. I just wasn't sure if lummert was implying those truck lights were bolt on or not.

. .. I don't mean hack up your front end! I mean you have giant square plastic lenses. You could paint them. . . cut the lenses, insert a bucket from any 60's 70's car or truck with the right dimensions (use clips, or plastiweld from the rear) . . . . and boom! custom headlights.



Do it right, and you could have a similar effect to thatT^^^

There is nothing that 'fits' but there are endless ways to retrofit something else but it will probably look like a$$ anyways. You are only limited by your imagination.

The rally lights fit fine, but they're not TB cheap.
