Default M8 armoured car bits and pieces for sale

Hi all,

I am starting to accumulate a few parts spare from my ongoing M8 restoration which I'll list here. These parts are surplus to my restoration and may be of use to someone else. I’ve attached a photo and a brief description. Please PM me if you want additional details or photos and I’ll email them to you. I can work out the freight cost at the time. The spare 37mm gun parts I had are now all sold.

* 37mm ready rack - missing the holders for the projectile end of the 37mm round. Asking $40 US (sold, pending funds)

* Instrument panel face plate - there is some corrosion around the speedo area which will need tidying up and filling. Asking $30 USD.

* Handbrake adjusting pin- this is a little bent but should straighten fine. Asking $5 USD.

* Transmission lever housing - some areas around the base have been damaged by corrosion. Asking $40 USD.

* Light Switch - I have checked this with a multimeter and it appears to work correctly. The indicator plate has been painted over but it is restorable. Asking $20.

* Turret traverse housing - a part of this where the handle would be has been cut away. Asking $5.

Default M8 parts for sale

Hi all,

I have these turret seats and tower mounts surplus now if anyone is looking for them.

Both towers will need to have some repair work on the base of the tower where corrosion has got to them.

The seats will need new rollers and some fabrication of the lock lever.

I'm asking $200 USD for both plus the ride there.

PM if interested please.

Default Radiator shrouds

Hello Darryl,
I spotted the "fan tunnels" for the radiator on your list. Do you mean the left and right radiator shrouds? I have the diffusers but am missing the driver side shroud for my M20 restoration. I could use a better right side shroud also.
I recall seeing you describe some parts you received from Europe and in the phots were a pair of shrouds that looked pretty good. Perhaps these are the ones you are offering?
Regards, Brian

Hi Brian

Poor choice of words on my part, sorry. I only have the one set of shrouds and I need both unfortunately.

Hi all

Here is another wee item to add to the list. These are NOS taillight plugs for the M8 and M20 armoured car. It is NOS but I opened the pack just to confirm what they are. Am asking $12 USD plus the ride there. Postage to the US is likely to be about $10 USD. Please PM if interested.
