Re: Almond Green Traveller FLD 457J

Mary

My second Minor was a late 1970 Almond green 2dr saloon , FLL168J. an ex London car as yours would have been. Bought in 1973 when at Norwich City College and last seen many years ago ( c 1982) in Medlars scrapyard.

Best wishes to you and Chris.

Re: Swapping speedo's

The mph speedo with black face , 90mph and 1408 as part of the number is right for the 1098 Minor in standard spec. Sometimes I have seen one with 1376 tpm fitted.

Re: Paint code for the brown steering wheel boss

One colour I have used in spray cans from a local car spares shop was Ford Aztec Gold. There are several golds that are pretty close.
