Just for clarification the early headlight buckets are made out of plastic/fiberglass or some such material. Later models had them made out of stamped steel. The switchover was apparently for the 1972 model year although my early '72 (9/71) has the original type. Either style should work but if you're interested in originality you'll need the early type for a '71.

Steel sounds better. I recently had the car painted and the original has a huge crack in it now. Dont believe it to be the body shops fault just a POS case. Something had to of hit it.

Part of the charm of the early headlight surrounds is the you can easily fix them with a little fiberglass cloth and resin when they crack or when a stud pulls out. They tend to be more forgiving than the later metal style IMHO.
