Welcome to Classic and Vintage Bulbs
Over 20 years serving the Classic Motor Enthusiast

Our Specialist LED or Halogen Bulbs, will not only improve your lights brightness but will also retain the original integrity of your lamps.

A range of types from as low as 3 watt up to 65 watt and a comprehensive range of original old type bulb bases, will mean that there is a bulb "tailor made" for your vehicle.

Whether it's an Austin 7, or a Packard there is a bulb that will fit perfectly.

With the huge range of bulbs and LEDs available from our product list, one can be chosen that will not over tax your generating system or damage your lamps or lenses in any way.

All of our products are made from new components sourced from quality manufacturers around the world and assembled at our works in Adelaide, Australia.

Halogen

LED

Why Halogen?

Advantages:

Defined beam pattern
Long distance projection

The modern Halogen bulb is much brighter than its tungsten counterpart of the same wattage or current drain. The technology used to make Halogen bulbs means they are far more efficient than old type bulbs resulting in a brighter/whiter light. This results in a brighter light than a tungsten bulb with the same current drain. For example a 6v 35w tungsten bulb draws just under 6 amps and gives a, some what, yellow light. On the other hand a Halogen 35w bulb gives a far brighter/whiter light and still uses the same current as its tungsten equivalent.

Why LED?

Advantages:

Low power consumption
Long Life

The latest in electronics now provide LED in 6v and 12v that use very little current (about 1/10th of a normal bulb). Our LEDs are  special versions specifically designed for Classic cars. They replace a whole range of normal bulbs. We have designed this LED range with the classic car in mind. Our White LEDs feature warm or natural white colour that fit perfectly with the original car look.
The Interior & Instrument LED's give max. light and minimal heat so they wont melt Plastic lenses

     LEDs for Old Headlights?       

We have a range of high power LEDs for headlamps, but unlike regular bulbs, which have a single point sources of light  (ie  filaments) positioned at the focal point, High-Low beam LED bulbs have 2  points of light, neither of which are exactly at this position. The resultant beam pattern is a softer projection of light but with the advantage of very low current drain. So it's a balance between a good projected beam, using halogens and normal current drain, or softer less powerful light from  LEDs but with significant current savings.
Many, so-called "LED headlamp bulbs" are available, but check the fine print as they may dazzle other road users.
