    Hello I am looking for two sets of front door chrome flashes. I am rebuilding a Swallow Doretti with used these flashes on the side of the body and reversed on the doors hence two sets. I was therefore wondering if your club could help me locate these.

    We have a range of spares available for the A40 Somerset, and we also have many Somerset owners in the club.

    In order to access our spares service you would need to join the club (see the ‘Membership’ page for details), and you can download a parts catalogue on the ‘Spares’ page which lists the parts that we have available for the various models we cover.

    I am trying to identify a NOS Laygear. Attached picture provides details. Markings are 1A3686 or 1A3686. Also has E8 vertically stamped on shaft.
    Tooth count is 11-20-25-31. Contains bushings and not bearings. It was originally encased in wax. Any info would be helpful.

    That part number does not appear in any of the counties cars parts list. With a 1A… number it will be a small car and probably later than the counties range.

    The Swallow Dorretti chrome strips are the same as the front door on the A40 Devon and the Front and Rear wing on the A40 Sports and as such are incredibly rare and in high demand. If you already have some for your car you will find it easier to have them refurbished and re chromed. I doubt very much if you will find any. Regards David

    There a post on the (unofficial) Austin Counties Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/5951341217/?multi_permalinks=10158038677966218 (dated Apr. 9th) advertising a Devon being dismantled for spares – might be worth a try.

    Is there any possibility the club or someone might have the outer rear light holder panel for a 16 BS1 for sale many thanks Carl.

    Hello Carl,
    These are extremely hard to find I’m afraid – they are one of the parts of the car that rust badly in almost every case.
    You can place an advert on the website on the ‘Sales & Wanted’ page, and I can put an advert in the next club magazine if you email me – but to be honest you’ll be really lucky to find one in good condition.
    I can see that yours is badly rusted – but it might be that a skilled metalworker could just repair it.

    Thanks for reply it is really in a bad state do you think one off a 12 is the same?

  11. PeteJS

    Carl,

    The immediately pre-war 12 HRB one possibly wouldn’t fit, as although it looked the same as the post-war 12 HS1 the body panels weren’t necessarily the same.

    The HS1 12 (1945-47) one would fit – but Twelves are far rarer than Sixteens, so I’m not sure that would help much.
