Hi does anyone know the Lucas part no for the Kestrel 66 tail light, I assume it was a Lucas unit. A photo may help as I do the swap meet circuit.

Kestrel 66 Tail Light

Post  PeterW on Fri Nov 07, 2014 11:24 am

I have an early Kestrel 66 (first registered in December 1953) which currently has the original triangular tail light housing and a (non-standard???) round, Wipac series 156 lens on a pressed steel back-plate. Does anyone know what the chances are of obtaining one of the original triangular black Bakelite lamps with oval lens that John mentions in his post? - Iíve searched on-line, without success so far. The alternative would be to fit the Lucas S529 lamp as also mentioned by John, but for that I would need an updated curved tail light housing, which I guess is rather difficult to find these days?

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
