This is a used original Lucas L494 Reverse Lamp, which were available as an accessory lamp and commonly fitted to British cars of the 1950's and 60's, including works Healeys and Minis. They were popular accessories for cars which did not come equipped with backup or reverse lamps. They were also popular as upgrades where a brighter reversing lamp was required.
The lamp is in fairly good overall condition, with shiny chrome. There are some small pits and imperfections in the chrome, but overall it's a lot better than most used L494 lamps, and shows quite well. The glass lens is in perfect condition. The pictures show a representative lamp.
We have new reproduction lamps as well, as well as several more original and NOS lamps; some can be seen in Related Products below. We also have correct original illuminated switches. Occasionally we have lamps with red lenses. Contact us if you would like more choices, as we always have more lamps than we have time to list.
