Brand new product for 2014!
This is the brightest and best of our LED stop and tail light units and is the perfect lighting upgrade for the Lucas 679 style of rear lamp fitted to many classic cars and motorcycles in the 1960s and 70s. It features a total of 36 warm white LEDs that are distributed to provide 360 degree light output which is very similar to that of a conventional filament bulb. With its glass globe and warm white light output, it is difficult to tell the difference between this LED light and a standard filament stop and tail lamp. The only real difference is that the LED unit consumes only a tiny fraction of the power.
The only product that gives better illumination are our custom Lucas 679 LED light boards, but these are not yet available for the Lucas 679 rear lamp (they’re expected early in 2015).
This LED tail light is suitable for use with all 12 volt vehicles (and also with 24 volt vehicles too) which are wired with a negative earth arrangement. It is not suitable for 6 volt vehicles or those wired with a positive earth.
It features the standard BAY15D dual-contact offset pin base which is sometimes known as the 1157 fitment. It has dual intensity output which means that all of the 36 LEDs illuminate for the tail light function, and they all light up even more brightly when the brakes are applied.
The warm white colour and wide 360 degree illumination pattern means that this LED is ideal for both lighting up the rear light and providing the necessary number plate illumination. This is simply the best 2 volt LED rear lamp bulb that is available!
Please note: This item is only the LED ‘bulb’ upgrade and does not include the Lucas rear lamp unit itself.
