What type of headlight bulbs came from the factory on a 55? Were they
T-3's? If so, what was the height of the lettere SEALED BEAM 3/8" or 1/4".
Need some help from the old guys here.
Thanks.

Depending on your car date there was a early and late design bulb. Early was a tin back later was a all glass seal beam design :anim_25:

I'm an old guy so I guess I'm qualified.:) It's not easy to see the lettering, but here's a picture of one.
The late one with the glass back.
Like "55copper" said the early ones had a metal back.
