1978-1980 Chevy G20 headlight door bezel - April 29th 2019 6:34 pm

Hello Folks,

Looking for some headlight bezel/doors for my 1978 G20 and note that this part is the same for those three years at least and are for rectangular headlight. I need a set to match and needs to be like new on the chrome or very close to it, it possible

GM # 14045071 - Headlight bezel (single square) driver side
[Partslink # GM2512110]

GM # 14045072 - Headlight bezel (single square) passenger side
[Partslink # GM2513110]

Seems like all parts below year 1984 are just discontinued....

Any help is much appreciated!

the 78-82 Headlight nacelles are hard to find in good shape (Rectangle lights were chrome and came with the chrome grill option, Round non-chrome were standard...i have seen 2 sets of round chrome and heard that it was an option...). a few people have 'extra sets' that come up for sale some times. a lot of time the price is steep. once in a great while they will show up on E bay. junkyards seem to be the best bet.

Yes NEmery,
These headlight doors seem to be almost like sighting a Sasquatch in the wild. I would have thought that with the constant demand out there, that these would have been in the aftermarket by now....

I've exhausted most nearly all the websites I could find online, but to no avail. I thought that someone out in the Van world would have some of these parts on a barn shelf, as you said the prices are getting wild.

oh they do! I have seen some Vanners out there pass them along to needy vanners for realistic amounts, but I have also seen some scalpers clear them out of yards and sell them for the high prices to make bucks.

and for the record, I have zero problem with people holding onto some extra hard to find parts! you never know when an accident can happen and then you need the parts.

If anyone runs across some of these parts in decent condition, send me an email, as I check my mail several times a day <mwdavis1@mindspring.com>
