headlight bulbs

Post by 66Westy & 64Bug »

Hi,
I've got a bulb out on my newly restored 64 beetle and its a loooong time since i've bought a headlight bulb.
It has the tungston round base like this

is there anywhere that sells 12v halogen bulbs?

Thank you!

Lucas make a P45T Halogen type bulb which will fit the split / pre 67 beetle reflectors

Not sure how long they will last in the early style non sealed headlamp though hot glass and moisture do not mix well

Thanks I see that C&C sell them so I'll try them - they havent had any reported over heating problems.
