Springalex centres

I've now found six different types of the early ones and there are several of the later one piece type, all with different centre discs.

I've had them re-produced and I'm very happy with the results!

cibie metal covers.jpg (53113 bytes)


Cibie Oscar lamps with the metal covers on - used by the Works Escorts on their lower lamps - hard to find in good condition


cibie metal stone.jpg (26332 bytes)


Cibie Oscar lamps with the metal grills fitted - used by the Works Escorts on their lower lamps - even harder to find in good condition than the ones above!

biodes.jpg (42594 bytes)biode1.jpg (34257 bytes)


Cibie Biode 7" headlamps lamps - used by the Works Escorts once the rectangular lamp was found to be pretty hopeless!

This lamp has a secondary reflector unit - hence the name'bi'ode.

Getting hard to find - no self respecting works replica is complete without a set!


avobkts3.jpg (33922 bytes)


Lamp Brackets
Various steel lamp brackets available from Ford RS dealers in the 70s. These were all used by the Works Escorts prior to the alloy version being used.

guard1.jpg (51880 bytes)guard2.jpg (35644 bytes)

 

Magard Alloy sumpguard.

The cheaper copy of the 'Tech-Del' magnesium version used on the works cars. At least these would still stand a good landing, I'm afraid the magnesium will be well past it's best 30 years on!

 

 

contour.jpg (80074 bytes)

 

Contour 'Clubman' bucket seat. This sorry looking version has been sat in my store room for years - I didn't know I had it!

They were either trimmed in Betacloth or the Airotech (waffle) vinyl and if you are very lucky, come with a strange looking headrest. 


dash3.jpg (50161 bytes)

 

Not quite exact, but a reasonable reproduction of the 'works' instrument cluster.


dash7.jpg (89478 bytes)

Another reproduction of the 'works' instrument cluster but showing gauges more representative of the ones used on the original works Mk1 Escorts. 
Smiths 80mm Chronometric gauges were used for speedo and tacho and a dual oil pressure/water temp gauge. 
Original aviation 'pea' lights are fitted to illuminate the gauges.


dash2.jpg (65680 bytes)


Dash under construction - Finally, we have found some warning lamps which are close to the original ones!

indicators1.jpg (56136 bytes)


Lucas indicator/sidelamp units as used on many 'works' cars. The top ones are the genuine Lucas versions which have metal bodies (both black and chrome) and the bottom image shows the 'Vega' lamp lenses which had black plastic bodies.

lucas576.jpg (50931 bytes)lucas576a.jpg (65305 bytes)

trico1.jpg (33534 bytes)

Trico illuminated switch.

Used as a reverse switch and warning lamp - originally fitted to 60s Jaguars!

pedal1.jpg (75304 bytes)pedal1+.jpg (66826 bytes)

 

Speedwell accelerator pedal - this is an early plastic version which is brand new and still with the packaging.

 

I bet you could have bought one of these from the local 'Rally and Speed shop' in the 60s for less than a pound!

Used on many works cars so the drivers could 'toe and heel' easier.

pedal2.jpg (80710 bytes)



Paddy Hopkirk accelerator pedal. 

Same idea as Speedwell item but made by Paddy Hopkirk Accessories.   The famous Mini driver had a full range of go faster goodies and were fitted to anything in the 70s!

(Now available in the parts for sale section - click here)

butlers.jpg (35296 bytes)

Butlers map light.

Every rally car in the 60s and 70s had one of these! 

tripmet.jpg (23664 bytes)

Halda Tripmaster.

This is the alloy cased version of the famous tripmeter as found on many works cars! 

trippvc.jpg (28628 bytes)

Halda Tripmaster.

This is the plastic cased version - slightly later model, with all the problems ironed out and the case never looks scratched - but not as sought after as the alloy version!

twinmet.jpg (29471 bytes)

Halda Twinmaster.

This is the alloy cased version, there are two types, smooth black and wrinkle finish, it is getting very hard to find good ones nowadays - we all threw them away and fitted electronic ones!

twinpvc.jpg (29226 bytes)

Halda Tripmaster.

This is the plastic cased version of the above, again a slightly later model, but not quite as 'original equipment' as the metal bodied ones.
