60's Mopar 4 light sealed beams will work if fitted properly in the buckets.

I think these fit without modification, but cannot guarantee it....it's been too long since I went that route. https://www.amazon.com/Sealed-Beam-Head ... B009H9XEL2

Make sure to get the low beams, as they do high and low setting with three prong plugs, high beam bulbs will only have one filament and only two prongs.
any 4 headlight 1970 Ford LTD should also be a crossover if your not a MOPAR guy... :D

Part number 4000
You may have to notch the ring in the bucket to get them to go in right side up

The 4431 is still obtainable and is the proper part per the ORD 9, should not require any cutting or modification. Why modify when the right part is available?
