Arrow NOS T-84 Headlamps for sale, 6/23/2019

Well, it's finally happening, the early estate sale where I'm selling, not buying. I've had these for eons and will never put them on my '95 Roadmaster Limited wagon. Still have an NOS Impala SS set in reserve, so it is time to let these go. They have never been installed, seals still on the turn signal portion and original headlamp bulbs installed. I threw the boxes away long ago and wrapped each in cloth and packing. Included is an equally NOS Gary's Innovative Wiring two relay T-84 wiring harness for the Impala or Roadmaster, along with two H-4, 100/80 bulbs.

The glass is crystal clear and the reflectors are perfect. Any tint in the photo is reflection from the yard and sky where I set up the photos. Still have the green dot on the lens and the export stickers to be removed. These are show quality capsules. The export spec lamps have the headlamp and turn signal sections reversed from the US spec capsules. The headlamp reflector is on the inside and the turn signal on the outside.

Shipping will be from 32258, paid by buyer, FedEx. I will pack as I would want to receive these, in a new heavy duty cardboard box and suggest you fully insure.

Payment by certified bank draft, no PayPal or personal checks please and allow my bank to say your payment is processed. I am listing this set and wiring and bulbs at $2100.00 I honestly do not think you will find another better set.

PM me or send an email through the forum or text at 904-534-3619. I don't live for the cell phone, just saying...but I will return a text, eventually.

I will also include my notebook section on the T-84 headlamp and Gary's wiring instructions. I don't come around here as much any more but it's time to let some treasures back into the stream. I'm still going through Dal's stash of parts I bought years ago. More stuff coming out of storage.

We have these on our 21K mile 95 SS. One of the best mods I ever did to the car. Highly recommended, even at the price. The lenses are GLASS, in case there are those who don't know T-84s. With the light kit, the output will be even better.

Arrow It's July 7th, 2019...

Thanks for the comment. These are excellent lamps for driving as well as show. If it helps sweeten this for anyone undecided, I do have the no longer available Expel 3M protective lens and cornering/side marker kit WITHOUT the aiming tab cutouts, made for the T-84 lamps. These will not be for sale separately.

These lamps have NEVER been on a car. Also, note the leads for the "City Light" in the rear view.

Thumbs up Been a month...

Found one PM on these lamps. Been a month...any interest or do they go back in storage and maybe make the eventual estate sale, or target practice?

Ya could make an offer, but no insulting ones. We both know what these are and, yes, it is 2019, not 1996.

One thing working against you is most folks predisposed to these already have them. Even myself (who would dearly love a set) do so little driving at night that it becomes harder to justify. Hang in there though. You only need one...

That, and $2,100 is a lot of coin for any single part that doesn't require gasoline. The pool of buyers at that pricepoint is very, very shallow. I'd wager a guess that there may be 5-10 buyers in total that are willing to drop that sort of money on headlights for a 25 year old car. I am not saying your price is too high - it is what it is and these things are rarer than hen's teeth so its a seller's market - but selling is gonna take a while to find your buyer. The last time I saw a set for sale was on eBay and they sold for $1,500. I believe that was last year, so they can (and will) fetch a lot of money.

Good luck man. I'd love to have em.

"We both know what these are and, yes, it is 2019, not 1996"

Not to be piling on but, In those 23 years the proliferation of HID and LED has changed things.

The merits of those are open for debate, but nevertheless they present an affordable alternative.

With regards to what others have written, settle for less before the market at your price is completely gone.

Thumbs up So, offers? Hmmm...

I opened this to offers and so far I don't see anything, except they are worth it, which we know. Thanks for the replies though.

Maybe some folks don't know these fit the Caprice, 9C1, Roadmaster Wagons and the Impala SS. They also look better than any after market stuff out there over the years and work much better, being genuine GM, with glass lenses.

No, they are aimed just fine for the US since these were meant for Europe export and some places, like Germany, drive on the same side. They do change the output of the light.
