headlight buckets

I've got a 72 240Z. I noticed during my rebuilding that I have a plastic or fiberglass headlight bucket on one side and a metal one on the other. For a long time, I figured that some damage must have been done to the front end, but, recently I heard other Z owners say the same thing. Anybody else notice this or am I just dreaming?

Re: headlight buckets

The Series I cars came out with Fibreglass buckets, and they were eventually phased out and metal ones were used instead. It is very likely that by the time your car came off the assembly line that one side had already run out of fibreglass ones and they used metal. The other side got fibreglass since they were being used up by attrition.

Just a possibility.
