Another of the many products made “in-house” here at Vintage and Classic Spares is this beautiful reproduction of the iconic pre-war Owl-Eye rear lamp. Made by Lucas as the Type 312 rear lamp and also branded as CAV these rear light units were becoming almost impossible to find in good condition.

We have developed our own tooling to have the bodies pressed from brass and then deep chrome plated. The internal components have been revised to make the lamps more reliable. A sturdy cast alloy bracket supports the modern, easily replaceable bulb-holders, with a curved stainless steel plate above. The number plate downlight window is now clear polycarbonate. These lamps are built to last.

The lenses are made from acrylic sheet (perspex) and can be supplied as Red & Amber, or Red & Clear according to how you plan to use the lamp. Lenses can be moved to suit R/H of L/H fitment to the car. 

These units are now badged in line with our ever expanding Toby Lamp range. ‘Toby Mitchell – London NW1’ was the mark that John Mitchell used for his remanufactured CAV and Lucas pattern lamps which were branded ‘Toby’.
