Re: Adderley Park Number details needed

Currently selecting images - sadly no Abingdon chassis plates to illustrate - but getting there slowly. As stated previously, had hoped to put bodyshell codes into month/year range, ie via the Z12345 nos. can determine vehicle approx age. Though it DOES appear bodyshell codes ran alongside each oth...

Re: National rally 2019

Thanks Dean, Manyminors

That would make sense. I've seen a few different photos of the car and it looks slightly different in each one. It would make sense though, seems like Thames blue was an option until mid '52 and my car is just slightly later than that, September 52.

Cheers

Re: National rally 2019

Thanks for all the great photos Dean. Looks like there was some great cars there and I've missed out ☹️ The early 52 tourer, OCV 648, does anyone know what colour it is ? Is that Birch Grey ? I have a 52 tourer in birch grey also, but it is so faded and bleached by the sun, it is hard to tell what i...

Thanks for the photos cococola, good to see some of the cars and displays. Sadly I can't make the rally this year, so nice to see what I've missed.

Hope everyone attending enjoys day two !

Re: Minor Identification Booklet

Me too please Chris.

If you are still needing Adderley Park vehicle numbers, let me know. I can get details for a couple of late vans.

Thanks

She made it successfully at the weekend. Not too surprising really, it was the right car for the job !

Re: Lowlight saloon on ebay

This new set of photos is certainly more revealing than the previous ones. Definitely looks like a big job, but it seems straight and importantly, not messed around with. Hopefully someone will take it on and bring it back to life. Would be a shame to see it broken for spares.

Re: Lowlight saloon on ebay

It looks fairly complete and original but a bit crispy.

There were a range of values suggested for it, ranging from "whatever someone will pay for it" to the optimistic " ask £5000 for it" interested to watch and see what it makes.

Re: Parcel shelf

I recently fitted a new parcel shelf to a 66 saloon and the rear of the shelf was fixed to the bulkhead with a number of large screws (similar to those holding the gearbox cover on) into tapped holes rather than rivets.

Morning all

As this one is local to me, I popped across this morning for a look. The car has now been sold so is no longer available.

Thanks for uploading the photos. Looks like a great day despite the weather and a good turnout of cars. Shame it was so far from Scotland, I would have loved to attend.

Re: door cards

Hi Rob Many thanks for the two links for the suppliers. I don't suppose you know whether either of them supply a beige vinyl that is anywhere close to matching the original MM beige ? Everything available seems to be a very bright beige rather than the deeper yellow beige of the original cars. Thank...

Hi John My copy of the magazine came in last week and I quickly scanned your article. Looking forward to reading it in more detail. Looks like a big challenge but it will be fantastic when it's finished. In some ways, a whole new interior may be easier than trying to match old and new. A complete in...

Re: door cards

Hi John I mentioned the other week that I had received a sample of MM beige vinyl from Newton Commercial. I have now compared it with the original door cards from the car and whilst the actual colour is not a great match, the pattern of the vinyl is quite good and looks like original. If you were re...
