Yes, they were imported to the states. Mine came out of Southern California.

John,
I'm surprised that I missed that A40. I regularly troll CL from LA to Seattle looking for parts. Of course I have to admire the cars while I'm at it...
I need a bonnet and boot lid.

If anyone does need a pair of mk1 Cosmics 5.5 x 13", I have some I bought from Tom several years ago. I finally got them back to the UK. :lol:

drive? outside? How would it get there?????

(actually, I'll need to use the garage as a workshop in a couple of weeks, so it's going to find itself relegated to the drive for a while)

With careful photo taking and a jack handy you could make it look like a set of four on the ebay pictures?

I hate to chime in with a note of practicality, but...the wheels, at 5.5 inches, are probably too wide for the Farina. I've got 4.5 inch ones on mine and they are a good fit, given the fact that the car is a bit lower than standard.
On second thought, grab the jack and a fistful of wrenches, remove the rear brakes on one side first, then...
