Any inner headlamp alternatives for a 67 Shelby clone?

I fixing up an old Mustang that has had a bunch of Shelby items added many many years ago. I'm not wanting to duplicate or clone a Shelby but I would like some of the general styling. I was thinking that since the inner headlamps were the smaller seealed beams, maybe a set of 64 Comet buckets and mounting brackets might work after cutting the mount in half. Anybody ever do anything like this?

Also thinking about making my own grill if I do this. Possbily making the outer areas out of flat sheet metal and using a stock 67 grill for the inner area.

Old pic for reference of what I'm working with.

Wow, first time I've ever seen a 67 grill opening with a 68 style hood. Certainly unique. You've got a nice custom going there. You can usually find the 60 Galaxie headlight buckeys on Ebay. That is what Shelby used.

I have a 67 hood and nose on the way from Stang Aholics. That nose was removed and traded off and I recently sold the 68 hood.

This is another shot of it from the early 70s.



This is it now. It's been stored since 1974 but I recently started a little body work on it. Dropping another 302 in it soon.



Adding 64 T-Bird bezels for a different look.

I haven't been able to locate any 60 Galaxie buckets so I opted for a set of 63 Comet buckets. Not sure if they are inners or outers but they are exactly like the Galaxie buckets except there is a different mounting flange on the rear. They should work fine.
