Headlight beauty ring

What vehicle do the rings for the headlights come off of? My chrome is in very bad condition.

I'm not 100% certain, but I believe these were standard amongst cars based on headlight diameter. The ones on my 1956 dodge truck seem to be the same. The Original Healey ones should fit. Verify headlight diameter if you're not certain. They attach with one screw at the base, and two metal clips that look like pieces of coat hanger at the top.

Thank you for the information, I purchased a pair and they were wrong from Victoria british. The ones they sent me are pointier and just a bit too small. Mine are rounded on the front. any ideas?

Not 1950 Chevrolet. Bought a pair and they don't fit.

Notes from the previous owner of the unfinished kit I purchased indicated that the headlights assemblies were from a large truck.  Based on that information and comparing the headlight ring that I have it appears that the headlight assembly in the link below is that same as what I have.

Not sure if it matches yours.  Please let us know if the truck unit matches.  Hope my information helps.

The guy who had Classic roadsters told me that the 50 chevy was the head light ring on the phone a few years ago... I put that on my "replacement part list" and is what I planned on replacing mine with if they ever needed it. Oh boy another "no one knows what it is" part I guess.. Sorry I passed bad info along... please update us as to what the heck they are and again my apologies
