There was a fair bit of "square headlightness" going around back then.
From my dodgy memory-The VH Valo types were common with LH Torana, but not much else.
The larger Gemini's (TD) were hard to get and expensive, then the TE gemini's had what we used to call 2BX, either sealed or halogen. These were interchangable with lots of cars of the era, as Rob says, sort of a generic style of headlight.
Then there was also the "small square" in twin such as Stanza, 200B',s GH Sigma's and lots of things like that. A lot of Isuzu trucks had them too.
And thats before you started on XD, then XE Falcons and so on...
There was a massive trade in non-genuine parts back then, we used to sell a million Ford door handles for example, all those import parts became so cheap it was incredible, compared to a few years earlier. A lot of them were rubbish, badly aimed headlights and so on, but certainly not all. Some of the parts I reckon were made in the same factory as the genuines! In some ways I reckon the car manufacturers were to blame for this massive influx of parts- for example lots of the secondhand genuine headlights were over $100/$150, and really hard to find. So you could buy a new non gen part often for cheaper than a secondhand genuine.
I reckon the Cargo has TE Cortina headlights though. Think they may have also been in Transit's but don't hold me to it!
There a bit of mild headlight trivia for your Tuesday..
The rectangular lights in the LH Torana were a sealed beam or at least they were in my SLR V8. The rectangular lights in Lorry were H4 and had to be replaced due to the reflectors going rusty. Local Auto ELectrician was able to supply me full LED replacement lights for less than replacement H4 lights and the LED are 100 times better to drive by.

The Cargo was a British build so I would expect parts would with other British Fords such as the Cortina. At the time Ford Europe had their own retail parts division. Accordingly I wouldn't be looking at General Motors products for a match, especially ones that had a big Aussie input.
