It has been interesting reading (reminders!) regarding the "correct:" headlight shell for Interceptors of a particular year as experienced by Rufus with his new project. Tomoil's suggestion is probably the most viable way to go if the coupling in the shell is at all salvageable. It is, indeed (!), a challenge trying to make these things "right" again. Damaged/butchered headlight shells are not at all exclusive to REs... Personally to date, I've never had an Interceptor with the correct headlight shell intact....Source material for such repairs seem to be readily available from many suppliers.
Speaking of headlight shells ( I may have posted this before), I am in need of the correct shell (cyclops mounted) and rim to suit my Chief Project... Not only does it feature a unique mount, but the contour is different when viewed from the side... Shells from an American Indian do not seem to match accordingly. Thanks to the shared info on this forum, I was able to fabricate the mounting bracket with correct dimensions. Anyone out there have an unidentifiable 7" "Cyclops" mounted shell?
Also, yet again more unobtainium: I need the front chain enclosure to match the fully enclosed rear chain guard as used on the Constellations.circa 59/60. Should you have such a piece, please let me know! Even a broken part to repair or dimensionally copy would be helpful. Hitch has none!
