Sabre / Sabra boot lid handle

Post by toomanysabres » Wed Aug 31, 2016 6:18 pm

I think this is from our 'economy car' range. Think it might be the model with a rear opening door.
Does anyone recognise this and could point us in the right direction. One is needed for a Sabra restoration (got lost by the chrome platers).

Don't think MK1 mini boot handle as they have a fixed stud. I'll go with Roger's cross ref to the new Holden MG Y Series/Morris 8 Handle. This has the correct countersunk fixing screws. The pitch matches and the shaft can be cut to length.
Thanks, I'll pass the link on. There is a NOS one on ebay at half the price but I think there is surface corrosion starting.

I thought the traveller had a single arm, not a tee?
