    Even though the ebay listing says they are sealed beam, you can remove the bulbs?

    If they are the sealed beam, you cannot replace just the bulb. You would have to buy a whole new housing if the bulb went out

    Probably a typo. I mean, you CAN do a retrofit with the glass sealed beams, but it would be a lot more work and the glass lens distorts the light output anyway
