I have a set of the new type that are plastic buckets with chrome steel trim rings. My old ones had steel buckets and I decided to get the old rings rechromed and reuse them.

I will sell the plastic ones. Let me know if you are interested and I will come up with a price. I'm sitting in the Hospital with my mother rigth now.

FWIW - I could not find a new set of steel buckets. I think all the new ones are plastic.

Thank you for replying , I am looking for the metal bucket assemblies I guess I could go moss motors and get a set of the real thing , or mill supply . When the rings get rechromed have it don’t with 3 rechromed layers . It will last forever

I don't think original Healey buckets will fit. At least I have never heard of anyone fitting them. Very few original Healey parts will fit these cars. They may have similar curves, but the bodies were heavily massaged to fit the chassis parts Classic Roadsters were using. The body parts were modified to fit lights that were available commonly when the body mold were made. I think the original headlight trim rings are the wrong OD to fit the fender.

I crossed the numbers that were stamped on my headlight buckets and finally crossed it to a replacement. Turns out, the buckets that the Sebring used are the same ones that were used in Baja Bugs. They are available from most offroad aftermarket VW suppliers.

I found the headlight buckets at millsupply.com 65-003 and the stainless steel rings also36-543  they are the exact same as classic roadsters supplied my seabring mx .  I am still looking for replacement rear tail lights with led's maybe I can get morimoto to make a special set to look and respond like the 458 Ferrari does
