I need a pair of headlights (the square type) for my HC Viva as the chrome has gone in mine. A quick search of the net hasnt come up with any viva ones for sale, am I right in thinking Chevette ones are the same?

Nope...I do not believe they are....neither are MK1 escort ones, although they do fit the hole if I recall . . .

HB and HC headlights are similar - physical shape is the same its just that the position of the side light bulb holder is different. If you do find some be aware that there are 2 manufacturers Lucas and Cibe and the mounting frames are different :wink:
