TSC sells the sealed beams for the Guide headlights. Your post prompted me to search for the GUIDE brand headlights, I've been meaning to do this. On the back of my lights, they read Guide... figured this might lead to something. What I found, "hot rods" use to use these, old trucks use to use these. If you think these lights are expensive in the Simplicity world, wait until you see what they pay in the Hot Rod world! I saw a set going for $250! Look at the two links below and you might see a pair of lights you can paint black and they'd look really close to the Simplicity lights. Then again, they want $250 for them. http://www.fordbarn.com/earlyv8/forum03/messages/58888.htm http://www.roadsters.com/sale/

I actually made a mistake above BLC lights which are similar to Guide lights are going for $250. They are a very similiar light from what I see.

I think you will find that the price of these light assy. depends on color and make of equipment they are advertised to fit or came off from. Most of the OEM's used the same generic lights painted a different color. Red brings more than orange and green will bring more than red or orange. Black was the generic color but add a manufactures name to it and it will double/triple. A $30.00 set of black lights and add Simplicity/Allis to it and the price will go to $60/$70.00. Add the brackets and that same set will go to $80/90.00. Add the wiring harness and it will go to $100+. Add NOS and it will go to $150.00, NOS in the original box and its anyone's guess. Some people will pay more if they are green.
