Light and Indicator refitted this evening :D

All ready for "Action"

didnt have time to fit the door, but my Electrician mate noticed that the Indicator was U.S spec and got the parking light working :D

Image


Passenger side Indicator was not U.S speck :( Ive got a few spare Indicators somewhere in the garage not sure if there the standard one's

Had a phone call from my Dad on Thursday saying he has fitted a new(ish) starter motor and a brand new battery to my '63 Notch, she fired into life soon after :D how happy am I? VERY :D

The '63 was laid up back in '04 as had trouble starting,

Today I got it out the Garage..........

3 years worth of dust.....

After a good clean put back in the garage, ready for the MOT in a couple of weeks time.....

NIght night..........

Drove it from one garage to the other (using the back roads) did stall a couple of times, guess just needs timing adjusting.

Red Notch was registered on 3rd Dec 1963, but is '64 'S' model, where as your's is a 'N' model, there are quite a few differences between the two of them, including the Indicators.

not sure what you meen about the fuel cap, mine is under bonnet like yours.

Have you seen the old pics of your Notch here.........

Congrats on the pass! :D It will be great to see it again.

I have an August 63 RHD Notch, but not a Red one.
It might be a while before it makes it to a show though...

Danny - Congrats on the MOT!!

miketyp3 - Wouldn't that make it a really really late '63 model? (I don't know the car so don't know off hand)

easy - if it is December 64 then it's a '65 model ;) Or did you mean December 63?
