Doing a "Vintage build" so looking for Lucas parts in working condition.
No, that is not a joke, I have found Lucas more reliable than Delco.

Ignition-lighting combo switch as used on several cars, Bug-Eye Sprite, Metropolitan, etc.
Vacuum turn signal switch as used on Jags, MG-TD?, and others.
Tail and marker lamps as used for MGA, TR3 and many others.

Reproductions are available but are overpriced and lack "Patina".
With all the donor cars parted out here I expect some of these items are just gathering dust.

I may add to this list as the build progresses.

You can also try BritBits in Rye N.H. they’ve got all sorts of vintage hardware.
There is also a guy in northeastern VT (not northeast kingdom) who has all sorts of old British car parts ... big white barn - sorry I don’t know his name
