Re: 1949 MM Gear Nob

On the bottom photo the one at bottom left is the Morris 8E and 10M solid bakelite version which is the right shape for an MM. The one at centre right looks like the solid rubber ones which the club via Mike Perry had mad a few years back and of which we still have some left. The mould for these cam...

Re: eBay Scammers

Forgot to say - Ebay didnt seem particularly concerned when I spoke to them this week. If I was to include my email address in any of my listings on ebay they would withdraw my listing immediately and give me a right bo*****ing. Is it an ebay insider trying to boost eby vehicle listings?

Paul Beck retired earlier in the year and Vintage Supplies was sold to new owners now based elsewhere in the UK. Maybe he will now have time to finish the restoration of his S11 Van.

Re: Lowlight saloon on ebay

Does not show on DVLA Vehicle check so no value to number. Original Oxford number as well from late 49 early 50. I had OWL on a Oct 49 Tourer several years back.

Re: Outer headlight rim

John

There were some screw type ones on there but guess must have gone. I found the original ones off my MM in the garage last week. Need rechroming as I replaced them with new ones.

Did you contact Gary Booker re the MM water pumps and are you coming over next month for the NEC show?
