Re: 1934 Austin 10/4

That is quite a long wish-list so may take you awhile to get exactly what you want.

A visit to an Autojumble (Beaulieu in Sept - biggest in Europe) is a good (if tiring) way of hunting down parts. Alternatively good but expensive replica parts can be found at one or more of the specialist suppliers such as Paul Beck www.vintagesupplies.com  They do many bits that look similar to or replicate original parts - lamps, door handles, trafficators, friction shocks etc. or they can provide bits for refurbishing original parts.

One puzzle - you say you have a '34 Ten but ask for 6v trafficators. A10s were all 12v from Aug '33 (cross-braced chassis frame). If your '34 car has a flat (chrome) radiator you may also need the boxes that mount on the scuttle that house the Lucas trafficators if you have not got them.

Tail lights - when new would have been one Lucas round "pork pie" light next to the number plate. In the 1950s when the UK laws changed most were fitted with a second light on the LH side of the No plate or had angled rear lights fitted to both rear wings (fenders). Many of the replica parts offered include "flashing indicator" options - because modern drivers do not understand semaphores any more!
Hope your search is successful

Thanks a lot Peter for your valuable reply.Probably the Austin shipped to India and now with me, might have been 1933 model but registered finally during 1934. I will check on the cross braced frame to confirm.

I have a pair of 6v trafficators (semaphores) for separate body mounting.  I have never used them so would be sold as seen. 

Best wishes

Try eBay, you will find the parts if you enter the vehicle parts section and put in the search box what you are looking for and it will filter for you. The next Beaulieu sale will be in May 2015. As Peter says ever thing you list will be there, may take a day to find though.

Dear John,
I am interested in buying the 6V trafficators which you are planning to sell. Please post a few pics of the unit and inform the price you are expecting for the same.

Thanks
