not sure what your asking, but you need the whole 83-86 front end to use those headlights. if your asking if you could use the sealed beam style ones you might be able to use a bigger one from an SVO mustang or similar to fill the gap better and retain high/low beam.

you might want to check out the Fox tbird and cougar sites for more info.

it should be doable, you may have to do something custom to mount them though(i'm guessing).

if you want the true SVO look i'd get the same sealed beam lights they used for the SVO's, using the 83-86 bird/cat ones will be too big if you used all 4 lights, and they would be too small if you used just 2 lights(plus no highbeams). the SVO lights look to be the same size as the headlight between the corner and parking lights on the birds.
