Re: OPTIONS. WHAT WAS AVAILABLE IN 1954!

Basic had rexel (vinyl) seat facings and no heater

Deluxe had leather faced seats and a smiths heater as far as I am aware, but I'm sure a Minor 'Nerd' will be along with a definitive answer

Re: Oil blackening quickly

I would change the oil and filter annually and if it's going to be in the garage for a lot of the winter, change it before you put the car away so it's not sitting full of contaminates. I also change the oil and filter on my modern diesel annually, as oil if far cheaper than a blown turbo..............

Re: Dashboard dials

Don't want this to sound negative but, the more dials you have, the more you end up worrying about.......

Re: Original Distributor's Window Stickers

First thing I do with any car I buy is remove the dealer stickers which are in essence 'free' adverts for them.

They never offer a discount for them being on your car do they?

Re: Wildly inaccurate speedo

Possibly contaminated with oil?
It can come from the gearbox via capillary action and put a small coating on the speedo interior parts

There is a post somewhere about stripping and cleaning a speedo head (if your really brave)
