I recently saw a picture of a orange c3 ('73+) that had C7 head lights. It was at the Phoenix Vette Car Show and on the C3VR FB. Looks awesome and I would like any information such as the shop or specs etc. I'm interested in possibly doing it. Thanks rick

Picture above.  I did not get a chance to talk with the owner.  Another photo is out there using 2000-01 Toyota Celica headlights is the guess of the poster....

Thank you that's the one!!!  What a beautiful job and it just looks like it was meant to be like that from birth.

How can we find out who or where it was done?

Thanks again
rick

Not a fan.  They don't fit the lines of the C3.

That's why we all have our own opinion.  Mine is the C3 lines were so far out in front is why they are timeless.  Certainly not the technology, but the lines of the designs and that is why I see the C7 lights flowing right into the lines of the big front fenders........just another C3 owner's opinion.

That's right, it's your own car and only you can decide. If you are a fan of modern LED DRLs, you may like the color changing kit for these C7 headlights (You can check it here).
