What on earth does it do, a kind of bump stop upgrade?
68' 4-door Saloon, another 'Monty'.

You are correct in that it is a bump stop upgrade but it can also assist the suspension when carrying a load or towing a trailer/caravan.
Ideal if running with lowered suspension.
Asking price is now reduced.

I remember my dad had similar springs on his Consul Classic, I'm not sure you would get them in with a 2" air gap on a minor.

The bump stops they use on many modern cars which are a foamed polymer are much more progressive than rubber and are used as a spring assist in many applications, I'm sure some of these could be re-purposed on a minor.

You have to remove the original Minor bump rubbers before fitting the Aeon bump rubbers.
The Aeon bump rubber metal mounts can be trimmed in the 'V' to increase the rubber to chassis clearance. Note the 'V' casting marks on the ends of the metal mounts for trim reference.
