Quad Headlights: 1 used pair and 1 brand new pair!

Post by Mike P »

I have for sale 4 quad headlights, 2 are used and 2 are brand new.

Let me explain:

These are not Morettes but the Citroen Accessory type, so even rarer now! And I've never seen brand new ones for sale anywhere else :!:

I bought the used pair a while ago from France. As you can see in the photos, one of the lenses is stone chipped but the units themselves are still good and useable. Where the plastic mounting lugs should be, the fixings from the standard headlights have been mounted. These pick up with the 3 off ball ended rods that the standard headlights use and you don't have to drill holes like you do to mount Morettes.

I never used these as soon after I bought them, I also acquired the brand new pair as well. However, these are not one for each side but 2 for the passenger side! Complete with original (but tatty) packaging, wiring and rubber covers, however no instructions.

When I went to mount one of the brand new ones, the 20 year old fragile plastic snapped on the metal ball rod, so also included in the sale is a set of the 3 plastic standard headlight fittings to drill and mount to the quad unit.

Everything here will allow you have a full working set with brand new lenses on both sides, the 2 wiring packs are for the same side but obviously you will have the spare one to copy or utilise in making a loom up for the drivers side. Plus you will have 2 spares for the passenger side.

Price is £200 for all this. I will post to anywhere in the world, at whatever my cost is.

Hi Richard,

I am no headlight expert and somebody else may correct me, but I believe so.

All the lenses are the same, the beam is adjustable on the white handled spindles and the whole unit is of course adjustable on the 3 standard mountings / adjusters.

The packing on the 2 off new units covers English.

No PM received yet at time of writing this post.

If they were bought in France and are for a LHD vehicle then no they won't be suitable for RHD. The lenses shine to the French nearside or our off side.

Agreed, if you look at the glass you can see the asymmetric lensing.
