Original headlamp brands

Nearing completion of restoration on my 1973 GTV. For concours purposes I wanted to know what brand of sealed beam headlamp was fitted as new to a USA spec car. Additionally what was the source and function for the smaller inner lamps. Were they “fog lamps” or “driving lamps” ?

Thanks in advance !

They were originally orange sealed beam bulbs activated by a toggle switch located on the center console and considered foglights. As I recall they were either GE of Sylvania, but not 100% on that.

Cars ruined my life! 😱

Thank you for that !

So are we thinking GE or Sylvania for the Hi/Lo beam as well ?
