Post headlight issues

On my 66 Impala the driver side lights ( high and low beam ) sit 180 off. The beams shine vertically instead of horizontaly. I have looked at them several times and it seems as though the headlight bezels are wrong. Has anyone ever had this problem??

Showtime, I think you mean 90 degrees off. Just rotate them to get them in the correct position. The older beams used to say TOP on them so that should not be too difficult. Als0, there should be "bumps on the outer circle of the beam that fit into notches on the head light housing. Remove your bezzel and put them where you want em.

Trees your right, I meant 90 degrees....But I have tried everything I could think of . Even moving the bezels. The only thing I could think of was there must be a left and right bezel set. And I must have to lefts. Because the passenger side headlights fit fine. The drivers are 90 degrees out.....
