Spark Plug Caps

Post  Jared Mk3 on Tue Jun 12, 2012 5:52 pm

We just received our issue of the June MiniWorld (SA is always a bit behind) and as always I have a quick look at the Ebay watch section. To my surprise, I noticed that there was a NOS Champion Spark Plug Cap. It was sold for roughly 108 Pounds or so, for one. I had a look at the item again and was surprised to see it looked familiar and realised that my dad had just given me a full NOS set of these. So right now I feel very lucky.

Am still curious if NGK spark plug caps are equally rare / exotic / valuable as the Lucas type referred to by Jared Mk3.

The Champion type are only expensive as the early cars used them, they were superseded in the early 60's (approx 62/3) so are in great demand for people restoring early cars correctly. The 62/3 onwards type are still available so are about £4.

It will depend on if the NGK type are available and to which cars they were fitted to originally to determine if there is sufficient demand to increase the price. I would doubt "normal" caps would be worth more than about £5 each regardless of how rare they are, it's the demand that increases the price.
