Default E&J Headlights

Can anyone tell me what a complete pair of E&Js is worth?

Thanks

Okay, this is what I know. They are in nice shape but have some scratches in the housings all should polish out with some work. Lenses are in good shape with some light scratches. Reflectors are good but starting to show some spotting.

Hope this helps

I've seen 'em needing lots of work go for $500, and seen nice ones go for over 800.

I sold a nice set about 6 yrs. ago for $1200. You may get lucky as there's a small brown envelope with instructions inside that is taped in one of the headlights. More times than not they're usually missing.

I'm always the weird guy in the room. I always thought those things were ass-ugly.
But hey, I think Kinmont brakes look ugly too.

I'm weird too. I would build a driving chassis for that money, or if I had the chassis I would use the money for new tires & body pieces, truck junkyard has lots of lights. The high dollar parts are something else to worry over in my case.

Hey at least I'm not alone with thinking those E&J headlights are hideously ugly! What's so great about them anyway? Personally I wouldn't give you 50 cents for them cause they're ugly and look stupid on hot rods, but I know to some those things are worth big bucks. Hey to each his own!

Yep, I can recall the one swap meet in PA that there must have been 10-12 sets. Going rate was $200-$300. This was in the mid-90's.
