12 inch headlamps

Does anyone know where I can get a pair of chromed headlamps that are 12 inches in diameter? The only ones I can find are original ones of old 20's and 30's packards/cadillacs etc. and cost about $1000 once they are rebuilt.

I was hoping to find a more recent car or truck that might of used this size and hopefully will be a lot cheaper. Thanks for any leads.

What about using 1934 Ford commercial headlights. They are 10" in diameter but they will only set you back $270.

Thanks for the suggestions. I tried looking for marine spotlights but haven't been able to find anything close. I really like the 12 inch size so I suppose I'll keep checking ebay.
