I will assume we are talking Spitfire parts.

"Lisle" - '72 GT6 basically stock and original. For now... T-9 conversion pending.
"Winnie the Poo" - '79 Spitfire 1500. Rubber to chrome bumper conversion, otherwise stock at the moment.

Haha! I was thinking the same thing, Ian! I would actually pay admission to wander around the "Triumph Parts Museum". Of course, if I show up in a rental moving truck, best that the OP frisks me on the way out.

Well, Chad spoke up first, so I bow to his initiative, but add me to the list of folks who might be interested in the Alloy Wheels. Unique design. I like that.

All I can say is WOW!

Does that D type OD go on a single rail transmission or a later three rail? The earlier OD transmissions had the switch on the steering column.

I agree! Aaron, are there any signs of who the manufacturer of those alloy wheels was?

Its a great thread, getting to experience such a treasure trove. Happy holidays!

Hey Aaron,

Since I grew up in Scranton, I think I should stand high in the pecking order when the sale commences.
Congrats on the big score.
By the way, where did the seller race his stable?

D Type ODs are for three rail transmissions (pre-1974). There's no single rail gearbox mainshaft with the correct splines to engage with the D Type, only for the J type.

The shifter knob with the switch in it through me off.

The position of the overdrive switch moved to the top of the gear shifter with the introduction of the Mk4 Spit in 1971, so it was fitted to models with both the D Type and J Type overdrives. The difference was that with the D Type, it operated a relay, because of the high initial current to the solenoid when overdrive was switched on. With the J Type, the solenoid only draws about 2 Amps, so no need for a relay. Note also, the shift pattern shown on the top of the plastic cap is different for the single rail and three rail transmissions.
