* Lucas FT57 Original

FT57 Original

I bought this week an original Lucas FT57 headlight as fitted to a Ferguson tractor. It still has most of it’s grey paint on.

Look closely at the lens and the bar that runs on the inside of the lens.

 

I do currently have an FT57 headlight fitted to my tractor but it wasn’t originally fitted to a Tractor. Look closely at the second picture of the light fitted to my tractor. note the lens and lack of bar inside the light.

SO now the dilemma, the light I currently have fitted has been chromed and although not original adds a bit of bling to an otherwise grey tractor. I think I’ve got used to the shiny chrome. so should I replace it with the FT57 I have just bought and move the chrome one to the plough light at the back or replace it with the newly purchased original FT57. Or what I think I’m going to do is replacing the internals of the chrome light with the Original lens and bar inside. Then use the original outer and not right internals on the plough lamp at the back.

* FT57

Posted on April 20th, 2009 by ploughmyfield. Filed under Lighting.


I am the very proud owner of a FT57  a 7″ diameter headlamp as fitted to the bonnet of Ferguson Tractor.

You can see it here with the bracket attached to the base. This bracket attaches to the front of the bonnet.

The light looks Fab in chrome but it should be grey! I just don’t know I can bring myself to paint it.

How did I come to own the light. I had an email from a reader Nick Lovell. He got in touch asking if one of the readers would be interested in the lamp. Unfortunately the lamp advert never made it for you lot to think about buying as I bought it. I was particularly impressed with Nick’s outlook. He didn’t want to sell the item on eBay as he didn’t want it to go to the highest bidder but someone who would appreciate it. I hope I can do that Nick.  Nick is setting up a website to sell vintage car parts. He says its a pass time and the money isn’t the main reason for doing it. ”  prefer to put the right part on the correct vehicle and as long as I cover my costs, thats fine as this is a hobby mainly and gives me satisfaction when I can achieve that.”

Nicks website  www.heglo.co.uk I’ve asked him to get in touch if he has any other lighting items suitable for a Ferguson.

Thanks Nick.
