    I've got some off a 359, I imagine they're the same. 7-5/8x14. That's measuring on the back side where they're flat, the front is rounded so it'll be a little less.

    Believe you’re right. Same as an “A” model, K100, Freightliner and 359.

    Those headight bezels were made by Guide and used by every manufacturer from Gm busses to Oshkosh off road trucks. From Conventionals to cabovers. All the same.

    About 11-12 years ago I needed to replace one bucket that had rotted around the screw holes to keep it mounted into the cast aluminum housing on my 351. Also the square adjuster notches were worn out from 45 years of vibration.

    A local car junk yard that has busses it uses to house parts in has an old AM General bus like this. The bezels and buckets were still in great shape. The buckets still had some decent shine to the original black paint and minor surface rust in the bare areas. And the bezels were original thick steel chrome not the cheap thin ones or plastic repro’s. An exact match and bolt up to the one’s on the truck.

    87859262-FC4F-44D4-893B-7E68B3E72217.jpeg Was going to try and mount them in place of the OEM rectangular lights, on a straight cowl, W900L. It’ll be tight but I think they’ll fit, cause I’ve seen them on multiple hoods and those hoods aren’t the Jones, models.
