Sabre Six on a trailer

Black vinyl roof? 42 WYD? John Devlin's maybe?

Wheeler Dealers with Ant Armstead

I know it's a year old now but just been watching some of the new series with Ant Armstead on Quest. I was expecting more of what forced Edd China out - faux dramas and deadlines, less and less technical stuff and loads of cringeworthy made-up dialogue between Ant and Mike. All the crappy stuff the ...

Coupe SE4a horn button stalk

That's interesting Andy, thanks. At the risk of digressing from the OP request for a V6 Coupe horn switch, that classic Volvo switch does look like the Sabre/early Coupe one. But presumably if it's an overdrive switch it is two-position, in/out? Unless the overdrive latching mechanism is done elsewh...

Coupe SE4a horn button stalk

Hi Trevor, I believe only early coupes had this type of horn switch. I managed to buy one when I first got my coupe, but didn’t ever find out what else they were fitted to. This is what they look like.BD541FC1-D432-4399-A336-DD11D7A9039F.jpeg This type of horn switch in the photo was fitted to the ...

vertical link

Geoff Cooper and I had one snap on his Coupe in Portugal but that was right at the top of the threaded portion at the bottom. I had my passenger side link on the Sabre Six go in exactly the same place as Geoff's in Brittany in 2006. Can't ever recall hearing about one failing where yours has Peter ...

Mystery Car

Someone's suggested a Studebaker Commander. I don't think it is as that's too large, but the styling cues are all correct - so this is a European take on the Studebaker maybe?

Mystery Car

Someone on Facebook has just suggested a Wyvern which is a good shout. It has the falling rear line, lack of fins at the rear and the chrome trim things forward of the rear arches. But is the Wyvern just a bit too chunky for the car in the pic which looks quite slimline?

Mystery Car 2

split from “ the mystery car ” thread Anyone recognise the modern (for 1958) car driving away from the camera in this pic? It's 1958 post-war Plymouth, from a Plymouth historical Facebook group I'm on. The car looks familiar but I can't place it - I wondered Borgward Isabella TS Coupe, and we've ha...

What is this?

I think the V6 Coupes all had pre-engaged starter motors from new, unless anyone knows differently?

As Jim suggests, on the Coupe the engine-bay mounted solenoid in question was also an original fitment I think.

What is this?

Here you go.

I think this is original, the starter solenoid to the left of the bracket as you look. I've subsequently added a thermostatically-controlled rad switch & relay to the rear of the bracket as well:

Thanks for posting these Mike - I'm envious :)

When will someone realise that a properly prepared SE5a would make a cracking, comfortable, reliable ride for an endurance event like this? I love it!
