I think they were from the Riley 1.5......but some doubt here about the peak, suggesting Morris Oxford Ser III or IV:

The W&P job number could/should be written behind the dash panels somewhere or under the arm rest lid.

hello i have looked all over the dash and center console and theres no visible numbers on it, the rest of the cars seats and door trim and arm rest were removed by the last owner who will not let me see if the rest has numbers on it :( and there is no numbers in the cars paperwork but is referd to as a wood and pickett margrave gt? it is the short gt dash so am guessing it wasfitted with the later seats (its a 75 car by the way)

Problem is, that only rarely did info appear on the V5, regarding Wood & Pickett.

The car dont have any Margrave features, but its a WP with MK III dash, which use the original 1275GT clocks.
Its scroud is also shorter than the one on a Margrave dash.
It dont have the big panel with swithes underneath (only the Margrave option had this) .

Even if you cant find the built no, there is no doubt its a WP .

Just a shame the parts will be separated / fitted to other cars.

I am really considering keeping it all and restoring the car but concerned that ill spend more on the car than is justifyble as I feel I payed alot for the car as it was even with the other bits I got, I am open to suggestions about it, but feel my other replica is the way to go
