I am looking for a set of Pork pies or Della Red beacon taillights in good condition. I know it's a long shot but it doesn't hurt to ask...

I thought I had an extra set on the shelf, but it turns out, it was just a small unicorn shitting rainbows. The series 1 club and eBay uk are your best bets.

I seem to recall that, surprisingly, John Craddock in the UK had some. You might also check Dunsfold.


No they aren't going to come cheap unless you find a seller that doesn't know what they are. I picked up a pair of NOS lens bodies from a Canadian eBayer, in the original Lucas boxes, a few years ago for $35. Had to fab my own bases/bulb holders but they certainly look the part.

Have you joined the S1 club yet?


Those guys are great and are a bunch of help when it comes to finding things like that. You might also check Dare Britannia in Washington state.........they are expensive as hell and the guy can be a little cranky, but he does have a decent hoard of S1 stuff from time to time.


It's worth asking him, Charles Kellogg is his name.

What country is your 107 from originally?

The US/Canadian spec trucks often had run of the mill lucas 488 (could be getting the number wrong) glass lights and some other countries had sparto L581.

Also, there are these:

Land Rover Series 1 Pork Pie Lamps Lights New Pair | eBay

Repo spartos:

Land Rover Series 1 2 2a Lucas Repro L581 Rear Brake Tail Light Unit LED bulb x2 | eBay

Lucas 488 (widely available)

Landrover Series 1 2 2a Lucas L488 Rear Brake Tail Stop Light Glass Lens Unit | eBay

If you post a picture of the holes, I can probably tell you what was there originally. My preference is the 488 if you are uncertain as they looks right, and are actually pretty durable.

I am looking for what I believe are L518... There are good knock offs but they are not what am looking for.

On the 488's when I visited Uncle George in NOLA he was showing me the varying levels of quality or lack thereof in these repros. The better ones have more definition in the raised lettering on the lens.

Just thought that was interesting. Triple C in the US sells those lights too. The original lenses aren't too hard to find and then you can use the new replacement rubber, bases, and trims etc.

Craddocks has the 518. 275UKP each. If It was a US/Canadian truck, I doubt it had those lights though.

DB, that is what I did, old lenses, new rubber and bulb holders. My 59 had some weird lucas ones with screw holes through the glass which I was able to save.

It's a UK import not a NA that we thought.

But it is LHD? The VIN will tell you what it was. I don't have my series one book handy to check, but I am sure it is online. In any event, the holes on the back of the truck (along with ghost marks from the outside) should let you figure out what it was.

Will Hedrick broke the vin down for me, chassis number 00911 of 2030 and was an import LHD
