Classic car headlamps at SC Parts
The headlamps on a classic car are essential components of the whole vehicle design. That's why we offer a wide range of different models and sizes, so you can find the exact spare part that fits to your vehicle. So if you're looking for a classic car headamp, then you are absolutely right here.
Which headlamp fits to my classic car?
It is important to note that there are vehicle specific and country specific versions, such as the sealed-beam headlamp, because there is no general operating permit for it in Germany.
Essentially, there are two common diameters of classic car headlamps, 7" (178 mm) and 5.3/4" (146 mm). Vehicles manufactured for the US market usually require 7" round headlamps.
When you buy headlamps, it is essential to consider the driving order in your country. English Classic cars that are imported are usually a right-hand drive vehicle and must therefore be converted for road traffic in Germany:
- If you want to equip a vehicle with headlamps on the continent, they must be marked RHT, alternatively LHD, alternatively right-hand traffic. It is not important where the steering wheel is located.
- If you are equipping a vehicle with headlamps for use in England, Australia or Asia, they must be marked LHT, alternatively RHD, alternatively left-hand traffic.
Of course, we at SC Parts follow technology and offer in our classic car headlamps assortment also noble as well as power-saving LED lights that perfectly shine your surroundings on a ride as well as your vehicle!
In the following we introduce our main headlamp models and our auxiliary headlamps, so read on and find the right headlamp for your classic car with SC Parts!

FAQ: Questions and answers
We answer your questions about classic car headlamps!
What if I put LED lights on my classic car?
Answer from tuev-oldtimer.de: No, because these are not considered contemporary.
Are classic cars still allowed to be operated with acetylene gas lighting?
No, because this is explosive and the headlamps have no light/dark barrier, i.e. they are not equipped to prevent oncoming traffic from being dazzled.
What does "with parking light" or "without parking light" mean?
If you buy a headlamp with parking light from us, this headlamp is provided with the possibility to install a parking light. If the parking light is already provided elsewhere on the body, you do not need a parking light.
What is the difference between H1 and H4 headlamps?
H1 headlamps have only one filament, which is used for low beam and high beam. H4 lamps have two filaments, one for low beam and another for high beam.
