Automatic headlights for vintage cars

I always seem to have trouble with the headlights on my 1964 Buick LeSabre. If I’m driving early in the morning, or at dusk, and turn my lights on, I invariably leave them on and kill the battery. All these new vehicles have a timer that shuts the lights off after 5 minutes or so.

My question is, does anyone make a quality timer unit that can be wired into the headlights. Ideally, it would also be sensitive to ambient light and make them come on automatically when it gets dark. I found one in the JC Whitney Catalog, but seems like there would be a better product designed for street rods or customs.

If anyone has any suggestions please leave a comment.
