HAMMOND GORDON
« on: July 24, 2013, 04:59:46 pm »
Okay at Jeans at the weekend could you please check out if the following are present ? Headlamps , back lights, 4" square rectifier, , 6" long connector block ( as per my wiring terminal post ) , starter motor , gearshift , seats - that will probably be enough to look for for now  ;)

Well there ya go Richard, The voice from the wardrobe has saved me the bother. For some reason I am under the impression that the rear lights are those small round jobs made by wipac.wico that were used on BSA Bantams, Tourette, and many many other things in the 1950's. Am I wrong?

Yep your right Bob - your wrong  :D the backlights are I feel sure peculiar to The Gordon . Made by SPARTO, England . Mine were less than perfect and I spent fifteen years looking for better ones, eventually got NOS lenses on ebay last month but they weren't giveaway . The rest not too difficult . Is there a useable petrol tank and tap ?

When I get home tomorrow I will post some pics of what the Hammonds could look out for in a no doubt large pile of unidentified bits . Let's see if we can crack this one eh ?

Someone has fitted the wrong ones, (Wipac) after 2009 when the car went back to Jean. As Richard said, they should be round ones made by SPARTO. See picture ....

Sorry micro but you cannot muddle up lights fitted to a completely rebuilt car with what is correct . Not saying it matters for your example but don't get the two mixed up in any way . Hence my love of original period photo's . Fantastic correct lights Rob who's are they ! !

 I copied part of a photo that you sent me with others around 2003. I thought they were your lights, Richard.

Ah ! Yep they will be then - they are unfortunately identical to the correct ones but without the clear number plate insert that I found recently as I said . I thought they looked good  :D

No your not. Your Tony Curtis wearing Wipacs and a very naughty boy.

Come see the Gordans at the Rally, just follow the lines of crucified rear light sellers and anyone who looks a bit like Kirk Douglas.

Have not seen those lights to notice before. Best see if we can find some.
