kustom ideas: dual headlights

When dual headlights became part of the regular car design, custom builders quickly adopted this styling element. On most of the cars, they made for a dramatic change of appearance. Whether it was for good or worse... you gotta decide for yourself. Just take a look at the custom dual headlight feature run by Motor Life magazine in their April 1958 issue. While there are some ideas that proved successful over the years, others obviously did not so much.

Maybe not the best example to start with.

Gotta love this detail shot of Barris' Kopper Kart.

Quite a radical change to this '56 Chevy front.

One of the more popular custom touches.

'54 Ford truck.

Not the most elegant solution.

These might be the headlights of the famous Rod & Custom Dream Truck.
