Wanted Lucas Cover

Does anyone have an extra Lucas Square 8 Lense cover they might want to sell? Rectangular eye.

Thanks

Re:Wanted Lucas Cover

Do you need just the eyes, or a whole set?

Re:Wanted Lucas Cover

I'd am hoping to purchase just one complete cover but could buy a whole set.

The eye is missing out of the one I have but I was going to go buy a little sheet of plastic and make a new eye cover.

Re:Wanted Lucas Cover

I've had these Lucas covers for over 20 years... bought them at an Economy Imports Auto Store in SJ, CA. Still have the box. Anyone seen these before? What were they originally used on? Steve

Re:Wanted Lucas Cover

Your white w/black letter lamp covers are what 2 of my cars are wearing now because my first set of these was in the trunk of my 1st HCS (1982?), and I have recently bought the 2nd set. Months ago, our site had many ideas and theories discussed about the proper covers for our cars. It is thought by some that these WHITE covers were not for the era of our cars (1968) while others talked about the 2 different styles of BLACK covers (ie. light holes being different styles or shape) and whatever. Someone probably should address this issue again. I notice that Paul N. in his '89 book (pg 43) has info. ie. OLD style and NEW. Also, in his '96 registry (pg 117), much more is noted about the white covers, which I would use as a point of reference for any judge or ANYONE else who might "rag" on me for my white covers. Read this stuff, huh, and let's get to the bottom of this issue. PAUL N. talk to us!!!!!!!!!!!!! hc Bob here.

Re:Wanted Lucas Cover

I am just guessing here but I think the white covers were replacement covers not stock.

Re:Wanted Lucas Cover

This has been discussed in other posts and I think Paul even chimed in. It was discussed that the GT/CS and HCS did not come with Lucas covers. Then the discussion turned to which Lucas covers were vintage of the time, if someone wanted to use them. The two vintage ones were black, one with round eye, and the other with rectangular eye. Though both are often used, the closest to vintage was the black one with round eye. Again, since our cars did not come with covers, it is an academic discussion as to which one someone prefers to use - they all serve the purpose of keeping our lights safe when driving. :) Casey
