Hi All,
For some reason the crazy side of my brain went ahead and picked up a Series One project :bounce:

I know its unlikely but I thought I would throw it out there....
Anyone have any replacement chassis parts knocking around for a series one (1956 - 86") looking for rear cross member and a "s" shape out-rigger .

Cheers,
Andy

Welcome to the club Andy! (The S1 club that is.....)

The rear cross member doesn't look too bad in that pic. What's wrong with it?

If you have the old S-outrigger, we can use it as a template to make a new one. Not very difficult and it's just simple sheet metal. Also, I know of several 86 & 88's around so you can always make a template from one of them (including Terry who was with me at the Winter Romp). A lot cheaper than ordering parts from the UK.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the info and suggestions. The whole chassis is amazingly solid except for the rear cross member is missing the lower third (completely missing!) and the one outrigger . I do have some good contacts in the UK so I am also looking at those options.

I signed up on the Series One website (I see that you, Dave F and Ray H are already there) so I have a ton of reading to do .....

Cheers,
Andy

Carl and Dale Redford remanufacture Series 1 chassis parts. I used them for both my outriggers and gearbox crossmember as well as replacement bulkhead feet (x2).

Great quality work and speedy service. You can find them on the LRSOC website.

Check out my thread on the rear crossmember repairs I did...sounds like a similar issue. I have lots more pics than I posted on the LRSOC that I can dig out if you need them of the crossmember repair.

Hi Ray,

1956 86" in green, shipped from the factory in Solihull on 28th Oct 1955 to Rootes Motors, Vancouver. Currently all fully stripped down in 1000 pieces :shock:

cheers,
Andy
