    Not positive those are for 901.

    Was hoping this thread would be a survey as well as chumming.

    Those H1 lights were first offered for '68 model year cars. Any earlier cars had non-halogen.

    Scroll down to SWB Euro Lights. http://www.audettecollection.com/por...adlight-guide/

    Short version - Bosch-made lights similar to H4s we all use today, but with a non-halogen dual filament bulb and a rounded front lens (same profile as the clear US glass).

    Therein lies the challenge. Having trouble finding original Bosch Euro assemblies and lenses.
