Welcome to

Old World Lamps and Tyres 

Proudly 100% Australian owned family business with NO financial backing from overseas corporations!

Chris and I (Russell) are a husband and wife team, who have always enjoyed working together. After years of restoring cars as a hobby, we decided that rather than do the things we were both commercially trained in, we would do together the things we both love (playing with old cars) and combine our talents to create beautiful things. We operate OWL from our 7 acre farmlet in the beautiful wine grape region of Mudgee which is situated about 3 ½ hours west of Sydney. For more about us (Russell & Chris), see below after the contact details 

Within our business we do a few things, all revolving around old cars:

  • Tyres - we import tyres for old cars and plenty of them ! We have a strong relationship with Lucas Tyres in the US and stock many Lucas tyres, which have the original Australian Olympic tread pattern. We also stock or can source Firestone, BF Goodrich, American Classic radials and many others. See our Tyres page for more details

  • ImportingIf you are looking to import anything from the United States we can assist, whether it is a 50’s Cadillac or 1903 Steam car, a jet ski, a pair of doors or just some heavy stuff you purchased on EBay, we can bring them into the country for you.

  • Cars and parts for sale - in our travels, we often come across some varied, beautiful and interesting cars and parts. Check out the For Sales pages to see our latest acquisitions !!!

  • Restorations - these days are generally for ourselves, but if time permits, we squeeze in a customer restoration (we are currently restoring a 1913 original Cadillac ute !)
