Hello all - I noticed on the main 240 page there is a shot of a sedan with round headlights, is it possible to swap out my halogen box lights on my 1985 240 wagon with the round low/high beam lights, and if so where is a good place to get them. I'm trying to spruce up the looks, and I think the round lights would look quite nice - Thanks again - you guys have been great !


best regards - Fred

Easy swap - fenders, hood, grill, bumper, spoiler, all lights, etc.

Many 240 followers seek the same swap but in the opposite direction - just HATE that one old 7'' round headlight...

Hi fmacdowell,

I just wanted to provide a resource for you:

K-jet.org: 200 Front End Options (with pictures)
http://www.k-jet.org/articles/...ions/

Another place to look for the parts to make the swap is Turbobricks (you will need to register to view the for sale/wanted sections):

A number of the guys over there have also done front end swaps, so search through Turbobricks for other resources to answer your questions.

Good luck!
And, please post before and after pictures! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Take care,
volvie!

Hey, George...
I notice that you have changed the site. You can no longer reply to an individual post and have to use the "Quick Reply".
At any rate... I love round headlights on the 240... most specifically the single, big, round headlights. If I could change mine, it would mean that I could use those great, old Cibie flat lense headlights.
Unfortunately, rebuilding the entire front end of the car to do it is not my cup of Hemlock.
Some of the most desired cars on Earth were designed with design conflicts... like the 66 Mustang.
I think that anything that would un-accentuate the square look of the 240 would be a great element.
I have never liked my four rectangular headlights.
