98 V70r aftermarket headlights: fb find

Post by CIK7 »

After finding this V70r on Facebook, I feel I gotta get a pair. Only worry is that I like glass and it's so much better than the garbage plastic that Ford decided to transition to. Where in the world would I find these? The 850 version won't work will it? I don't have money to buy them right now but maybe a year or so from now.

1996 960 Saloon ($1200, MI:140205, Silver Snoozer)
1998 V70 XC black ($1K trade, Mi:143,995/151K, The Cloud, totalled 5/2/20 @149K, engine toast @ 151,1XX)
1998 V70 XC white ($50 cash, junk, donor for my black XC)
2001 V70 Ba white (sold)
2009 Impala LT 3.5L (sold)

Plans for The Cloud: junkyard engine, new lighting arrangement, will be offroader.
My daily is faster than an Impala (9.1 sec) but still a snoozer (8.2 sec).

ABM projectors - available in black like above and ‘chrome’ ,available from IPD etc $450 USD then you need the matching corners. Lighting is ok .. folk tend to retro fit moromito projector lamps In place of the supplied low beams. Not recommended for use with LED or HID.
They are glass lenses - the difference between LHD and RHD are the lenses ( I don’t fully understand the US terms for the DOT and E-code glass) they aren’t plastic, and yes, they are only for x70’s.

Type ABM into a search here and a plethora of information will issue forth...

You can get these in silver or black. Do some digging to find the silver versions ... if the are any still available.


There are vendors on eBay that have some but be careful, they don't always get the fitment info correct.


Reguardless of what the vendors listing saids. If it will fit a 1999-2004 it will fit a
