Interesting about that, as I was recently thinking that same thing. Clearly, the car was originally designed to have the English Delco unit- it fits nicely everwhere with no fuss. The later Lucas unit barely clears the oil pump housing in the rear with the wiring plug in it and makes the installation process more work.

The switch over does not appear to be consistent with the VIN either, but that's not a surprise since they appear to have often not left the factory in numbered order either. My old JH (13301) had the Delco unit installed originally and my current JH (13242) has the Lucas unit installed from the factory, so go figure.
