Those were available from Sunrise. If you can't find one from them, I suggest you get a spare shell, cut the headlights from them and file the rear flat untill all you have left is the headlight casting. I think headlight covers are available from BLMA, which should work for the blanked out space above.

JnJ and Detail Associates also made Pyle-type twin beam headlights exactly like that, but its been a few years since I've seen part numbers of them.

You may want to try here: http://www.nscalesupply.com/DET/DET-Details.html

Part # DET-8216

The picture provided doesn't do the part justice.

Hope this works out,

The JnJ parts were manufactured by Miniatures by Eric and remain available directly from him...
