68 std headlight bucket grill bracket direction
« on: July 05, 2020, 01:31:56 AM »
I was comparing the original headlight buckets from my 68 base coupe and some others I bought years ago as potential replacements. The original has the bracket for the grill facing to be mounted to from the rear which matches what the AIM shows.  The replacement has the bracket reversed to mate with bracket on grill from the front.  They appear identical other than the bracket direction. Both have a CHEV SAE H 68 stamp. The only other difference I see is that on the originals there is a 40 stamped on the driver bucket and a 41 on the passenger side bucket. 

Just curious as to whether the design changed at some point, though my car is a 06 build.  Or they are for something else?
