Good evening
The 2 vanden plas I have had both had sealed beam, although the earliest was a 68.
I cannot say for certain but I would go with sealed beam.

I know that some BMC cars had bulb headlamps up to 1967 but I don't recall the ADO16s ever using them, so I too would go with sealed beam units :)
