    I have seen a '57 Pontiac Starchief with quad headlights. Apparently GM was trying styling exercises on numerous division cars. I'm sure that those bezels are one offs from the styling studio craftsmen. Quad head lights were banned by the Feds until late 1957

    There were several manufacturers of quad H/L conversions sold at the Pep Boys type stores to update your 56 model of many makes.
