    Is it possible to show us some pictures of the towing hook..???

    If you are looking for a rear toolbox for the right hand side i might have one for you..

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Oh no, not more competition for those rare parts! Seriously though, nice to see another one on the way, I am sure we can all help each other along (or console each other!).
    Nothing green at present.

    Thanks Hanno I hope the MW will not take five years to restore like the C15, hopefully spares will be easier to locate plus this MW has an engine in situ

    Looks in good order and if correct will come in handy.

    Good find and it is an early one with brass lamp bezel and metal lamp switch knob, they were made well in to post war times and knobs and bezels were changed to plastic, but interchangeable.
