How do I know which lamp is correct for my car?
There are many different LED inserts in our lineup and many different cars which use our LED inserts. The easiest way to determine which is correct for your car is to look at the lens. Most Lucas lamp lenses are embossed with the model number. Most often it will be of the form Lxxx. That number, such as L549 will be the model number you will need to order.
Should the lens not carry such a model number, browse the photos of the various inserts we sell and pick the model which looks like your lamps. All the models we sell can be found at the bottom of this page. Scroll down to view them.
Why LED tail lamps?
The light output of most incandescent lamps was adequate for earlier times when speeds were less and there were not so many distracted drivers with cell phones, text messaging, and other forms of distractions. Thus, it is important nowadays to be sure your classic car is seen, especially when braking or signaling a turn.
Happily, a solution is now available with the advent of LED lamps. These have been available for modern cars for quite a few years, but only recently has the classic car market been so served. They provide greater light output, yet demanding only a tiny fraction of the current load on the electrical system. These are NOT LED bulbs, but rather custom boards specifically designed for the designated lamp type.
Brittrix has been designing and manufacturing LED lamp inserts for several years. Our initial product was the ST51 D lamp as used on the MG TA, TB, TC, and Y-type. More recently we have added inserts for the ST38 "Pork Pie" lamp as used on the MG PA, PB, NA, NB, and a large number of other British cars and trucks. Also available are inserts for the Lucas 288 (Number Plate Box) as found on the Triumph 1800 and 2000 Roadster, MG SA, WA, certain Jaguar, Morris, Allard, Daimler, Singer, and Wolseley, cars. Likewise, the Lucas L471, L488, L594, L558, L647, L551, L691 and L813. Also some non-Lucas lamps such as the Rotax 706, and the Britax 9020. We also manufacture the inserts for the L538/L539 as used on many front marker/turn signals.
The latest additions to the line are the insert for the Lucas L488 or L594 lamp as used on numerous vehicles and the Rotax 706 as used on the MG F and D types.
All lamps are available in either negative or positive earth (ground) and most with either red or amber turn signals. All lamps are manufactured in the USA from US sourced parts.
