Time bandit, I'd love to see some more pics of your Landy. It looks fantastic!


No probs, I'll sort some out and resize them over the weekend and start another thread with them rather than clutter this one up and take the focus off MK1 door variations! Funny thing is, in a roundabout way it was the LR that lead to me to this forum believe it or not!

In the meantime though, here is a resized one I happened to have handy on the laptop...

Nice Lany, I have always had a soft spot for lightweights.

That's why you clear the dropping zone of men before you come in with the heavy stuff. Nice to see a lightweight again but the special non standard spares for them were always known as 'dues-out', a technical way of saying 'on back order from L-R' so the lightweights would be off the road for a few weeks at a time. In the meantime, it'd slowly be cannibalised for other bits for the other lightweights......... and so it went on! My friend in Devon has one that he's restored to Rolls-Royce like condition with gleaming mechanicals and deep bronze green gloss bodywork. Didn't see many like that on Salisbury Plain!

While we are here talking door production differences, when did the catch hole change from a round hole to an oblong one? I'm assuming it was when the handle escutcheon changed from just locating in the skin, to being held in with two screws (196?). Round hole example is from a 1962 car and the oblong was I think originally from a Riley Elf.

Book shows these options but there may be more:

14A6830 ESCUTCHEON
24A1139 ESCUTCHEON CHASSIS A-A257-327629-M & M-A254-160372 onwards. Plus 156501-160000.

24A2084 ESCUTCHEON

24A2245 ESCUTCHEON LOCKING
24A2246 ESCUTCHEON NON-LOCKING

Surely, the hole, whether it's the ROUND one or the OVAL one, it MUST align with the central axis of the door handle shaft so whether the hole is round or oval it can't be anything to do with the exterior handle can it? Maybe it's to allow the doors to cater for what we used to call 'manufacturers variants or tolerances'

Aren't the locks just cosmetic? It would be the same in South Africa, they used our doors, but the Italian ones are different and might have a small catch that stops the latch on the quarter vent from being flipped aside.
