John Craddock Ltd Magazine (April 2021)
Founded over 100 years ago, Lucas Industries began life as a manufacturer of pressed metal merchandise, such as plant pot holders and buckets. In the early 1900s, however, Lucas branched out into producing automotive electrical components like alternators, windscreen wipers, lighting and starter motors.
This change in direction proved to be a rip-roaring success for Lucas. Since those early days, Lucas has gone on to become the oldest continually trading automotive brand in the world, leading the pack in terms of component manufacture and supply for both OE and the aftermarket.
Lucas In The 21st Century
At John Craddock, we reckon that 147 years in the industry gives a manufacturer a pretty good knowledge of vehicles both past, present and (probably) future! Jump in almost any vehicle produced in the 20th century and you’d be hard pressed not to find Lucas OE content inside, either within the electrics, diesel or braking systems. In fact, many vehicles today still feature components created by Lucas, proving they are very much still at the top of their game.In 2021, Lucas wants to celebrate their heritage with a new range of classic parts that are specifically made for restorers, workshops and classic vehicle owners keen to keep their cars true to their original specifications. The Classic parts are reproduced from original tooling and re-manufactured and re-engineered to original Lucas standards by trained experts.
In short, the Lucas Authentic Classic Range of Land Rover parts are the first port of call for classic car enthusiasts that are passionate about authenticity.
