As part of a dramatic revamping of its range of replacement parts for Austin, Austin Healey, MG, Morris, and Triumph vehicles of the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s, British Motor Heritage (BMH) has now added the following pair of small but worthy items to its ever-growing stock – an MG Midget grill badge plinth, and gear lever knob that’s applicable to a number of Triumph models from the Herald to the TR6.
The two parts are as follows:
ARA2069 Chrome grill badge plinth
(recommended retail price: £50.00 excl. VAT)
A lug-type push-fit plinth that fits all MG Midgets produced from 1961 to 1969 that are equipped with a chrome slatted grill. (Note that the inset badge itself is not included.)
22B19 Triumph gear lever knob
(recommended retail price: £12.00 excl. VAT)
Originally fitted to the BMC J4 van, this spherical replacement item is a ‘universal’ fit for a range of Triumph models irrespective of their gearboxes or lever gates, as it has no gate pattern printed or engraved on it. The models for which it is applicable include:
- Herald – most models
- Spitfire MKI-III – all models
- Spitfire IV – all models
- Vitesse – all models
- TR4-4A – all models
- TR5 – but not the TR250
- TR6 – CP chassis numbers up to CP53853 only
British Motor Heritage (BMH) was established in 1975 to support the owners of classic British marques by putting genuine components back into manufacture; using original tools wherever possible. To date, it has built over 6,100 replacement bodyshells for the MGB, MGR V8, MG Midget, Austin Healey Sprite, Triumph TR6, and all marks of the original Mini, as well as thousands of individual replacement panels. These and other items are distributed internationally by a 60-strong network of specialists.
Both these items are available now from BMH, orders for which should be placed via the company’s related Approved Specialists, full details of which can be found on the comprehensive new British Motor Heritage website www.bmh-ltd.com.
