Re: radiators and wipers

Have a look at Holden's website and see if you can get a match. Off hand I think mine are 5mm adjustable straight bayonet fitting which I bent the ends to fit. I also think the blades are 9" https://www.holden.co.uk/c/hardware/washers_wipers/wiper_arms/f/c-wiper-arms-for-splined-shafts https://i.img...

Happy Christmas.

Re: Tripo headlights

I wonder how many 289s etc actually had tripod lights fitted as standard? Looking back to cars from the early 1960s I can't recall many which did and nearly all the originals in the ACOC have standard 7" round lights fitted. Whether they are original lamps or not I don't know, but I will stick with ...

I haven't been to the cinema for over 20 years, perhaps this will change that.
