  1. I have a similar problem Hamish.
  2. Many years ago it actually used to be on a TR3 but currently on a Mazda.
  3. Hi Ralph, Mine is 3in from the capping to the back of the steering wheel. Wheel is standard and I have a 3A upper column going into a TR7 intermediate column which then attaches to a Mk2 Escort rack. Any adjustment would be minimal, a small amount on the couplings I guess. All limited by the position of the rack itself I don't know how the different conversions compare. I find it quite comfortable and I am well over 6ft. Mike
  4. Colin, If you can PM me with your email, and commission number (TSxxxxx) from the bulkhead plate on lhs (facing the car) I can give you some advice. The process is different depending whether the car is a Home Export car (as it will originally have had a UK reg) or just an export. Whatever you do don't give the DVLA more information than they actually require. Mike
  5. My inbox may have been full, have now deleted a lot of messages. Please try again. Mike

  8. Another 8 months until my 51 years Mike
  9. 1974 just married with a big mortgage and running a TR3A as my daily driver when a friend comes round with an Austin Healey 3000. Not any car but a louvred bonnet and Healey's name in the log book, did I want it? I 'phoned him the next day as I knew that he changed cars on a weekly basis but he had already exchanged it for a Rover P6B. I imagine it is probably still around somewhere. Mike
  10. Not entirely sure Bob as there are lots of pictures on the Web showing Cobs with no side windows but some with chrome rims and some without.
  11. Side windows would not have been offered as an extra on the Commer Cob as then purchase tax would have been payable hence the Husky version having the side windows as standard. The other issue was the speed limit as a van, whether privately licensed or not, was subject to a 30 mph speed limit, once it had been fitted with side windows and seats it was not restricted. I learnt to drive on a '56 Cob (this was the earlier shape to the car in Andrew's picture) which had been converted, very easy to drive as I think the vans had lower gearing. Mike
  12. And Tony Netherton is still driving a TR, he has had a TR3B for many years. Mike
  13. Not seen this YouTube clip before. Marilyn found it while searching for something else. I had completely forgotten about Beechnut chewing gum.
  14. Hi Al, The subject comes up now and again, this link may help Mike
