Re: 6 Speed box, jolt on 5 to 4 downshift

Re: MK9 seat belts

I didn't believe it myself when I saw what was there -- thought that those large chrome dome heads through the outer of the "B" post were fixing remnants of semaphore indicators from Mk VII days. But yes, that's what they'd done on that '59MY Mk IX. My '61MY's still in store, waiting completion. As ...

Re: Newbie wanting info

Hello. And welcome to the forum :o Don't expect ex-Police if a 2.4L. Manual or Auto? This vehicle should've had its first MOT in 1966 if on the road -- that there's no MOT record at all indicates no test since 2004/05 though. Your next line of research would be via Heritage Haritage Trust. They'll s...
