Here we have an ULTRA RARE set of ‘New Old Stock’ Lucas LR6 ‘Projector’ / FT6 ‘Pathfinder’ sealed beam spot / fog lamps in brand new and ‘boxed’ condition! According to the included invoice, the lamps were purchased by Lucas employee Mr. Palmer straight from the Birmingham factory in 1971.
From the 1930s until the 1970s it was common to fit a set of additional ‘driving lamps’ to a British (sports) car. These sets usually consisted of a spot and a fog lamp. The wide-beam fog-lamp was mounted nearest to the verge and was also named ‘cornering light’. Both lamps had their own switches and the long range spot lamp could also be switched in conjunction with the high-beam head lamps.
These Lucas lamps come complete with wiring and switches all packed in their (tatty) original boxes! The inner display boxes are still in excellent shape! These ultra rare and BRAND NEW Lucas lamps will be a splendid period original addition to your show condition British sports car of the 1950s and 1960s! In period the Lucas LR6 / FT6 lamps were fitted to Austin Healey, MG, Morgan, Lotus, ROLLS ROYCE, Triumph TR, Jaguar and other British makes. See photos. The lamps can be mounted on top of your cars bumper-mounts or on a badge-bar with special brackets. “Enjoy the Ride!”

Description

Lucas LR/FT 6 lamps are the CORRECT TYPE for 1950s and 1960s British cars. Lucas LR/FT 9 and LR/FT 14 lamps are the correct type for late 1960s and early 1970s British cars. The Lucas SLR/SFT 576 spot and fog lamps (with the chrome nipple on the glass), which you see on many Austin Healey, MG and Triumph classics, are only correct for 1930s to early 1950s British cars.

We are STRONG advocates of long-range spot-lamps! Why? On any road-trip with your classic car in Europe you will find yourself in the pitch dark after sundown in rural areas. Especially on the winding roads of Great Britain, France, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and East European countries. You will find that your standard lamps (unless extra Halogen spot lamps were factory fitted) are very inadequate in lighting the road and the dangers ahead. Be prepared and add a SEA of light to your classic! „Enjoy the Ride!“
