hey everyone, 

 

Are there some details on these all red lenses available?

 

 

 

I can only find some old pics on google and nowhere am I seeing what model this came on or if it is available for purchase anywhere. 

 

Any details are helpful!

 

Thank you, 

 

ICM

I was on the search for some as well and just ended up buying some clear lenses and used some red spray tint on them. Seems to work pretty well they are plenty bright with some LED bulbs in there.

Either way that’s one lovely looking mini Jeffster06 has there, just trying to work out what the number plate is saying, is he referring to the hills?

Thanks, but a set from a reputable dealer would be great. 

These are MK2 lenses right? They should fit just fine in any MK2 housing?

the one on ebay was just for 1, i contacted the seller, these do come up rarely but after chasing them for so long now I have given up. Be prepared to pay between £80 - £100 for them.

Wow they have gone up a lot last year they were regularly selling for £60-£70 a pair
Mk1 lights are a lot easier to get in all red

Export spec, not sure if they were for USA only, or for Europe as well. If they were only for USA, they would probably only have been made up until around 1967, so nothing for MKIII cars. I found a couple of export sets for my Riley Elf. A little easier to find than Mini, since they were also used on ADO16 cars.

Here's a single RH side one, although a lot more expensive than the one above.

If it's stamped LUCAS and L813 I'd just buy it, you won't find any at "reputable dealers" anymore as these parts don't really exist in stock anymore! £25 seems like a great price for 1

No way I'd pay 200 for a lens. Just not me.
