Headlight size?

Anyone know the headlight size on a '58-60? Trying to get new ones but I won't be around the truck for a couple weeks. NAPA lists it as a 7" but I don't think they're that big.

Thanks

I just measured the 58's on my garage wall and they are 5 1/2" inside the ring the 57's are 7"

The same dual round headlamp bulbs were used in all US automakers 1958 and later vehicles.

Last FoMoCo vehicle with dual round headlamps: 1979 Lincoln Town Car.

Autoparts store dual round headlamp bulb industry numbers: High Beam = 4001 / Low Beam = 4002

Single round headlamp bulb industry number: 6012
