Mark V Rear Lamp
« on: 05 Jul 2015 at 16:57 »
Can anyone confirm what is the correct Lucas rear lamp for a Mark V. I've found an MT 110 online which is a reproduction and has both stop and tail. Presumably the original was a tail light only. Would this be the correct lamp? Thanks

Hello Roy,

I think the MT 211 is the right lamp. You can get it also as a replica and it has the same measures for the hole in the  number plate.
The original has stop light only; no problem to use only one contact and/ or other lamp.

Hi Roy,
            According to my Lucas catalogue, Taillight MT211 was fitted 1947-50. It was then superceded by taillight number 480 for years 1951 -54. The MT211 had the Lucas part number of 53056 (same as in the Mark parts book) - the later lamp has the Lucas part number 53140.
  Hope this helps,
     Regards,
                  Eddie.
