The part number is 4001R. Wagner also made a 50 watt version using part number 5001R. You should bear in mind that Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards prohibit altering the factory headlight system. People get away with it all the time but if you need to use your high beams you're out of luck.

4413R is not a headlight. It has the screw connection base, not the 3-prong hi-beam connection. The 4413Rs would not have been correct, if mounted in the hi-beam headlight position.

so would the 4413 be a fluted lens or just a spot? the par 36 bulb is the same size in diameter as the headlight it lacks the mounting tabs to keep it from rotating and is as you have discovered wired differently. with any kind of luck the man that put them in knew enough to wire them competently separate from the headlight harness. so that set of wires is intact. that begin said when i was looking for bulbs this size in red for the suburban I was able to find them made in china in spots only. some were in the 15 buck range. type in par 36 red light in your search bar, see what pops up
