Ford would probably have tested the lights on their machine (used to test the level of headlamps). Chances are that they are okay legally, just far too dim in comparisom with more modern units. Alot of cars have this problem, mainly due to the type of bulb used, for example, modern cars that DO NOT have xenon (blue/white) headlamps often use Halogen bulbs that are marginally brighter than older style bulbs (I believe they're H7 (newer) or H4 (older) bulbs?). A conversion would be uneconomical though, I recommend that you buy bulbs that are 30% to 50% brighter, in the correct format of course! Make sure they're road legal though lol (should say on the packaging....unless they're bought from an unscrupulous person lol)
