For Sale - Lucas "Flame Thrower" Driving Lights
These beautiful lamps are the famous 5.76-inch Lucas SLR576 driving or spot-lamps, sometimes known as "Flamethrowers." They are the lamps that won the Monte Carlo rally when used on Minis, provided elegant illumination on Rolls-Royce Silver Clouds and Jaguar XK 140 and 150, Mark I, Mark VIIM, VIII and IX, and dressed up the front of Austin-Healeys, Triumph TR2-3-4-5-250, MGA, MGB, Magnette, MG-TD and TF, and so many other British cars. They were sold as options on many of these cars, and thousands were sold as accessory lamps in the 1950s through 1970s.
They have LUCAS MADE IN ENGLAND and other inscriptions on the thick glass lenses and LUCAS SLR 576 MADE IN ENGLAND stamped on the backs. The bodies are mirror-polished chrome-plated brass, not the inferior steel version sold elsewhere. They are truly show quality.
