Just a FWIW you can find Sylvania tri-bars for around $35-50 including shipping if you do a on-line search. Not sure about what brand Danchuck has but they don't make them I'm pretty sure.
You will probably need to enlarge the bucket on a tri-five because the rear of the tri-bar headlight is a bit deeper/wider than a standard headlight.
They used to be illegal to run on the streets years ago...to bright and interfered with on coming drivers vision or some rot. I ran them on my FIA Cobra and wasn't about to pay the price the Cobra parts suppliers wanted for them...did an on-line search and got mine shipped from Illinois to WA for less than $40. Great looking and easily replaceable or upgraded bulbs, no red/blue or other colored dots were available in them then like Danchucks has offered, though that may have changed...one note you may need a relay in your headlight system if you are running original wiring in your car..
Thanks for the information, got them for $37.00 delivered to my door. My friend last week put them in a 56, (well he had it done) they do look cool and put out a lot of light. He has the red dots, with red car. Mine will come in a day or so and will have to see how it goes. Undestand about having to cut out the bucket.
Have a nice weekend guys
