Saw this over on Corral, such a good price I thought it would be worth sharing here:

Price: $27.48
Shipping & Handling: FREE on orders over $50
Orders under $50 include flat shipping & handling of $9.95
3-Year Parts Warranty


Part# HL 1017-L
Hollander# 114-260BL
PartsLink# FO2502161
Replaces OEM# F4ZZ-13008D

Right side is Part# HL 1017-R, total for both is just over the $50 threshold so I got free UPS ground shipping. Here's the links:

There's still a chance these are junk - I'm hoping the 3yr return policy won't be needed lol.

Update, these never shipped. I got an email the other day saying my order had been cancelled and my purchase price was refunded. Not so much of a bargain I guess. :(

Update: Guys over on Corral.net were saying that they had run out of these headlights, now they have more and are shipping again so I'll give it a second try and have ordered a pair. Will update again if I receive them or get another cancellation. Fingers crossed!

Well, got an email on 5/12 saying they have shipped and a UPS tracking number that was legit and says I should have them today, will update and try and get some pics if anyone is interested.

I am interested in seeing pictures, when you get them installed. Please, take before and after shots.

I would advise getting some clear silicone, and running a light coat around the seams of the headlights. I have read that doing this can keep the lights from fogging, or getting condensation.

I'll take pics of before/after and share them. Thanks for the tip on the silicone.

no problem, even though they are cheap, it would be better that they hold up for you

OK, as promised here are the before and after pictures. Install took about 30 minutes and the new headlights even came with lightbulbs and any needed hardware. I'm thinking it was worth the $54 which included shipping, you be the judge:

Maybe it is just me but those old headlights look like "Non-Cobra" lights. :scratch:

And the new ones look like the correct light. My 94 Pace Car has lights like the new ones! :thumbsup:

i thought the 94-95 headlights looked different from the 96-98's. The design on the front of the headlight was different?

Look at the photos from these pics of a stock pace car. They look like the ones in his after photos...
