Re: Windshield interchange


Just as an uninterested party as I am this side of the pond.
Be very careful with your selection. There were even two different
bucks for the originals. Three if you include the spyder.
I know this because I own two original different bucks that Triplex,
now Pilkington, reproduce under my licence.
There are big differences, both in curvature and fit, between the
'original' screen and replica versions.
Indeed they also vary between Abbey & Tennant chassis.
I went through a very time consuming exercise when someone
claiming to own an original chassis asked me to supply a screen
for an original car and then claimed it didn't fit. It turned out
his ego wouldn't allow him to tell me the truth at the beginning
and admit he had a Sabarro replica, which in many minds is meant
to be exact copy of an original.
Best of luck.
