1970 Austin MK II 1800
This is my late fathers project car that he spent a fortune on, I wanted to take it on myself but I fear my lack of time is seeing it degrade.
In a previous life my father was a mechanic and built a few drag cars. This was meant to be his sleeper rocket after a large period away from mechanics. The engine had a complete overhaul and was built for speed sparing no expense - he mentioned it had cost in excess of $25k in 2004 (without the car) . When it was re-assembled he drove less that 20km and something gave out, which for a variety of reasons (mostly a larger project) he never fixed although he told me that the parts required were purchased (see pictures). I understand that the problem came from a slightly incorrect measurement potentially the stroke length hence the new unused thicker head gasket.
The car can start but it makes a banging sound (no smoke etc) and has only been run to load and unload it from trailers. In addition to this the car requires;
· Suspension re-pumped up I believe he let it down to fit the Aeon springs
· Some wiring need to be finished and tidied I am not sure what happened here as it was finished
· Interior finished
It is a straight and clean body, there is now some surface rust now on the pain work now (I have a lot of cans of the colour) but no serious rust.
As he kept a lot of records and documentation/communication on the project I have been able to find over $14k worth of receipts for the larger parts and a lot of information on the build. The supercharger kit alone cost over $6k and the alloys over $2k.

Wanted - Austin 10 boot hinges
I have a 1946 Austin 10 and have been trying for quite a while to obtain a pair of boot hinges. Owing to the car body being manufactured in Australia the hinges are quite different to those affixed in the UK which appear only to use ‘internal hinges’. They are similar to those used in the A40, but smaller. They come in RH & LH units. I think they are the same as fitted to the Austin 8 of similar vintage. I am writing to you to see if anyone may have a spare or two in your spares shed which may be surplus to requirements.

Searching for previous family car
I'm trying to track down my late grandparents 1961 Morris Oxfors Series 5. They purchased new in 1961 from Purnell Motors Arncliffe Sydney. I believe the car was last registered in 1988 and may have spent some time in Hazelbrook Blue Mountains up until very recently.
The vehicles 2 tone paintwork turquoise and white colour scheme making her easily identifiable as there weren't that many in that colour schere.
Anyone that may have information on her whereabouts it would be great to hear from you as I would love to find my grandparents old car.
